Canadian Updates to the Neonatal Resuscitation Program
 
In 2017 the Canadian Pediatric Society put together a summary of changes relating to the delivery of NRP, in a Canadian context. Here are some key concepts.
 
DELAY

  • Delayed cord clamping is recommended for VIGOROUS term and preterm infants

 

AIRWAY

  • 21% Oxygen for a term infant to start and 21%-30% for < 35 weeks gestational age.

 

5 HOT Tips for THERMOREGULATION

  • Maintain room temp. at 23°C

  • Preheat the radiant warmer

  • Use a hat

  • Thermal mattress (under radiant warmer)

  • Use a polyethylene wrap

 

DON’T

  • Don’t use Ringer’s Lactate for fluid resuscitation

  • Don’t use Naloxone for respiratory depression following maternal narcotic administration. (Use your clinical acumen here though!)
