September 29, 2016 by  

A training session is being offered in St. Catharines that will provide those who take part with an opportunity to engage in hands-on experience in neonatal resuscitation.

The workshop will teach advanced intervention methods of newborn resuscitation to healthcare professionals. It will include all of the subject material of the basic course along with laryngeal mask airway insertion, endotracheal intubation, medication administration, umbilical venous cannulation, special considerations, and also the resuscitation of preterm infants. One of its requirements will be the completion of an Advanced Megacode Resuscitation.

Those who wish to take part must be an RM, MD, RPN, RN, GRT, RPT, CCP, or ACP. A printing professional can use binding to create handbooks and other materials for a training session like this.
