SFNM NE Series: Optimizing initial neonatal resuscitation to reduce neonatal encephalopathy around the world

Practice Points:

  • Neonatal resuscitation programs are based on evidence-based recommendations from the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation and adapted for regional differences.
  • Bag-mask ventilation is the critical, life-saving skill of neonatal resuscitation.
  • Beyond initial trainings, optimizing resuscitation can be accomplished through regular simulation practice and continuous quality improvement.
