New evidence has prompted changes in our national cardiopulmonary resuscitation guidelines for both neonates and adult patients. The purpose of this article is to provide an overview of the changes recommended by the American Heart Association, Academy of American Pediatrics, and the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology. In addition, a strategy for implementing these guidelines into practice is suggested. 
Maternal Cardiac Arrest: An Overview
The causes of maternal arrest, management of proper cardiopulmonary arrest in pregnancy, and implementation of perimortem cesarean delivery are discussed. Expand
Provider readiness for neonatal resuscitation in rural hospitals.
Maintaining high levels of readiness for neonatal resuscitation in rural hospitals is challenging and nurses and physicians should make special effort to obtain continuing Neonatal Resuscitation education to ensure optimal outcomes when newborn emergencies arise in Rural hospitals. Expand
Cerebral blood flow regulation following hypoxic attacks and seizures in the newborn piglet
Cerebrovascular function is protected against seizure-induced damage by enhanced endogenous carbon monoxide (CO) production by heme oxygenase, and it is hypothesized that exogenous CO derived from the CO releasing molecule-A1 (CORM-A 1) exerts protective effects on the cerebral microvasculature.

An active simulator for neonatal intubation: Design, development and assessment.
The debriefing phase was used to enhance the clinicians' awareness of applied force and gestures performed, confirming that the present study is an adequate starting point for achieving and optimizing neonatal intubation skills for both residents and expert clinicians. Expand

2005 American Heart Association (AHA) Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC) of Pediatric and Neonatal Patients: Neonatal Resuscitation Guidelines
The vast majority of newly born infants do not require intervention to make the transition from intrauterine to extrauterine life, but because of the large number of births, a sizable number will require some degree of resuscitation. Expand
The International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) Consensus on Science With Treatment Recommendations for Pediatric and Neonatal Patients: Pediatric Basic and Advanced Life Support
This publication contains the pediatric and neonatal sections of the 2005 International Consensus on Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care Science With Treatment Recommendations (COSTR), the largest evaluation of resuscitation literature ever published. Expand
Use and Efficacy of Endotracheal Versus Intravenous Epinephrine During Neonatal Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation in the Delivery Room
Endotracheal epinephrine is frequently used when intensive resuscitation is required in the delivery room, and intravenous administration should be the preferred route of delivery. Expand
Manikin training for neonatal resuscitation with the laryngeal mask airway
The experience of brief (≤15 min) manikin‐only training with the laryngeal mask airway (LMATM) for neonatal resuscitation in 80 health care workers is described. Expand
Resuscitation of newborn infants with 100% oxygen or air: a systematic review and meta-analysis
For term and near-term infants, it can reasonably conclude that air should be used initially, with oxygen as backup if initial resuscitation fails, and the effect of intermediate concentrations of oxygen at resuscitation needs to be investigated. Expand
Air versus oxygen for resuscitation of infants at birth.
There is insufficient evidence at present on which to recommend a policy of using room air over 100% oxygen, or vice versa, for newborn resuscitation, and the small number of identified studies and their methodologic limitations dictate caution in interpreting and applying these results. Expand
Relieving vena caval occlusion by perimortem cesarean delivery in a term gravida allows chest compressions to provide sufficient cardiac output in the unfortunate event of maternal cardiopulmonary arrest. Expand
Endotracheal intubation at birth for preventing morbidity and mortality in vigorous, meconium-stained infants born at term.
  • H. Halliday
  • Medicine
  • The Cochrane database of systematic reviews
  • 2000
Routine endotracheal intubation at birth in vigorous term meconium-stained babies has not been shown to be superior to routine resuscitation including oro-pharyngeal suction and this procedure cannot be recommended for vigorous infants until more research is available. Expand
A comparison of high-dose and standard-dose epinephrine in children with cardiac arrest.
A prospective, randomized, double-blind trial to compare high-dose epinephrine as rescue therapy for in-hospital cardiac arrest in children after failure of an initial, standard dose ofEpinephrine found no benefit and suggests that high- dose therapy may be worse than standard-dose therapy. Expand
Perimortem cesarean delivery: were our assumptions correct?
OBJECTIVE The recommendation to perform a perimortem cesarean delivery within 4 minutes of maternal cardiac arrest was introduced in 1986. This recommendation was based on the assumptions thatExpand
