Abstract

Provider Adherence to Neonatal Resuscitation Program Recommendations for Coordinated Neonatal Chest Compressions and Ventilations

Neonatal chest compressions are essential for maintaining adequate cerebral and coronary perfusion during profound cardiac depression after birth. However, chest compressions and extensive cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) are performed in only 0.08-0.12% of term infants after birth, so limited data exist regarding the quality of chest compressions and ventilations performed by neonatal providers. Chest compression performance in adult and pediatric populations often deviates from international resuscitation guidelines, raising the concern that the coordinated chest compressions performed in neonates also may not adhere to neonatal resuscitation guidelines.
