Revision of NRP 2010 Guidelines

Some main points

  • Compared to ACLS, NRP focuses on hypothermia prevention & effective ventilation (bilateral chest sounds and movements) in newborn.
  • Avoid hypothermia by placing the baby in radiant warmer or using plastic wrap.
  • Always try to reposition the baby’s head and adjust the mask (to have a good seal) if baby is not improving (still gasping or HR <100). Intubation should be the last thing you think in newborn resuscitation.
