REBEL Core Cast 30.0 – Neonatal Resuscitation

Take-Home Points

  1. Before starting a neonatal resuscitation, take some deep breaths to calm yourself
  2. Call in your friends – get a second team to manage the mother, call OB, call the NICU – all hands on deck
  3. Anticipate the equipment you’ll need, get it to the bedside and don’t forget to turn the warmer on
  4. Assign roles so everyone knows what they’re supposed to do
  5. Initiate transfer to a NICU as soon as possible

  1. I don’t think we did show notes for this one but I’ll see if I can hit up the interviewee for some.
