Karen Strange delves into the subject that she knows best: neonatal resuscitation. Karen has accumulated over 900 hours of case reviews surrounding neonatal resuscitation. She focuses on what gets missed, what is misunderstood and the role that fear and panic plays. In this lecture, Karen sheds light on the most common failures and misconceptions that come up in neonatal resuscitation. She’ll explain the key failures as well as the key components to successfully breathing for a newborn. You’ll leave her lecture feeling a new sense of clarity and deep confidence in how you respond to babies at birth.

Learning Objectives:

Objective 1: Explain what is happening in the first few breaths;

Objective 2: Explain the basic differences between the UK and AAP/NRP ventilatory strategies;

Objective 6: Identify how to and for how long to provide stimulation during newborn resuscitation;

Objective 7: Identify steps involved to ensure an open airway and effective seal and identify steps involved in effective thermal management;

Objective 8: Identify when to breathe for a newborn that is not breathing or not breathing well at the time of birth and describe how newborns shift or transition from oxygenating through the placenta and cord to breathing with their lungs;
