Abstract:

In this captivating explanation you will get a deep and clear understanding with new insight about the transition that babies make at birth physiologically and psychologically. Learning how we go from fluid filled lungs and oxygenating with the placenta to becoming air breathers without their placenta. You will learn what is most important in the moments when the baby is born. This goes way beyond learning about blood volume and red blood cells.

Learning Objectives:

Objective 1: The participants will be able to summarize and demonstrate what happens in the transition from in utero to extra-uterine life. This process is known as neonatal transitional physiology.
Objective 2:: Participants will be able to list 3 advantages of delaying clamping of the umbilical cord at birth.
Objective 3: Participants will be able to list how much blood the baby gets at birth, how much goes to the lungs and how much goes to the organs.
