Neonatal Resuscitation (NeoResus)
Competency in neonatal resuscitation is critical in delivery rooms, neonatology units and paediatrics intensive care units to ensure the safety and health of neonates.
The Mater Education NeoResus program is a specialised training program designed to arm healthcare professionals with effective newborn resuscitation skills and the confidence to manage scenarios of perinatal asphyxia. Under the tutelage of our team of expert instructors, participants will be immersed in a medical simulation training environment to build their evidence-based skills in assessment, intervention and crisis resource management.
The program is designed with participants of varying levels of experience in newborn resuscitation in mind. On completion of the program successful participants will be able to demonstrate the following:
- steps of assessment of a newborn baby after birth
- determining a baby’s requirement for assistance to establish and maintaining effective breathing
- assisting a baby to breathe using a variety of positive pressure ventilation devices
- administering external chest compressions in cases where initial resuscitation measures fail to restore adequate circulation
- endotracheal intubation and strapping
- establishing vascular access during a resuscitation at birth
- administration of drugs and volume expanders during newborn resuscitation.
