Module 2: Neonatal Resuscitation – Thursday, April 1st, 2021 at 11:00 AM – 2 PM (Dubai Time)


Based on a first study of 71 689 infants born in a hospital setting in Zambia indicates that an education program focused on thermal protection, neonatal resuscitation, early breastfeeding, skin-to-skin care with the mother, recognition of infant danger signs, and initial management effectively lowered the early neonatal mortality rate from 11.5 in 1000 to 6.8 in 1000 live births*. During this module we will focus on the pyramid of neonatal resuscitation, behavioral skills necessary for neonatal nurses, resuscitation algorithms and required equipment to ensure safe resuscitation of newborns.
