Creating a Newborn Resuscitation Simulation

Neonatal resuscitation is a high risk, low frequency emergency situation that occurs in approximately 10% of births (1). Preparation and training are essential because the need for advanced resuscitation is often unanticipated prior to delivery. For this reason, simulation training has become a central component of NRP certification and continuing education. The TABCS (temperature, airway, breathing and circulation and supplies) are essential components of all neonatal resuscitations. Continue reading to learn more about how to incorporate these into your neonatal resuscitation training program.
