BACKGROUND Neonatal resuscitation training is considered to be multifarious and includes manual ventilation as an essential competence for any health-care provider. Usually, ventilation is applied with self-inflating bags (SIBs). These devices have been shown to produce highly variable, operator-dependent peak inspiratory pressures (PIPs) and tidal volumes(More)
Point-of-care functional neonatal echocardiography (fnECHO) is increasingly used to assess haemodynamic status or patency of the ductus arteriosus (PDA). In Australasia, 90 % of neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) practice point-of-care fnECHO. The Australian Society of Ultrasound Medicine offers a training certificate for fnECHO. In Europe, the use and(More)
BACKGROUND High-flow nasal cannulae (HFNC) are gaining in popularity as a form of non-invasive respiratory support for preterm infants in neonatal intensive care units around the world. They are proposed as an alternative to nasal continuous positive airway pressure (NCPAP) in a variety of clinical situations, including post-extubation support, primary(More)
AIM Resuscitation guidelines recommend 90 chest compressions (CCs) and 30 inflations (INFs) per minute for neonatal cardiopulmonary resuscitation (nCPR). We hypothesised that auditory prompts would help coordinate these actions. Our aim was to investigate the effect of musical prompts during nCPR training on adherence to recommended CC and INF rates and on(More)
OBJECTIVE Resuscitation guidelines give no preference over use of self-inflating bags (SIBs) or T-piece resuscitators (TPR) for manual neonatal ventilation. We speculated that devices would differ significantly regarding time required to adjust to changed ventilation settings. STUDY DESIGN This was a laboratory study. Time to adjust from baseline peak(More)
OBJECTIVE Effective neonatal cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) requires 3:1 coordinated manual inflations (MI) and chest compressions (CC). We hypothesized that playing a musical prompt would help coordinate CC and MI during CPR. STUDY DESIGN In this pilot trial we studied the effect the "Radetzkymarsch" (110 beats per minute) on neonatal CPR.(More)
