4th International Conference on Pediatrics and Pediatric Surgery
Darlington Memorial Hospital, UK
Title: How do we provide PPV with an intact placental circulation at all modes of birth
Biography: David James Riddell Hutchon
The workshop will start with a presentation of the research evidence for the harm of early cord clamping currently necessary to move the neonate over to a room side resuscitation trolley. The workshop will then explore procedures necessary to provide neonatal resuscitation at the side of the mother with the cord and placental circulation intact, while at the same time meeting all the recommendations of the International Liaison Committee On Neonatal Resuscitation and the World Health Organization/Maternal and Child Health Integrated Program. Delegates will be encouraged and guided within a small team to develop their own procedures which can be applied within their own clinical environment. The role of each member of the team, obstetrician, neonatologist/ANNP and assistants and the position of the mother, neonate during resuscitation is optimized. Monitoring and documentation of the condition of the neonatal heart rate etc achieved while at the same time preventing hypothermia. All the facilities of the standard room side resuscitation trolley can be available. Team practice will be available with manikins.
