The Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) is an educational program jointly sponsored with the American Heart Association (AHA). The course is designed to teach an evidence-based approach to resuscitation of the newborn to hospital staff who care for newborns at the time of delivery. Since the inception of the NRP in 1987, over 3 million individuals in the United States and internationally have been trained and the program has been translated into over 30 languages.
Significantly revised and updated, the new 7th edition reflects the revised American Academy of Pediatrics/American Heart Association guidelines for neonatal resuscitation and emergency cardiovascular care. Powerful resource for interactive, simulation-based teaching and learning.
- Two new chapters added covering post-resuscitation care and preparing for resuscitation
- Some 140 new full color photographs replacing a majority of line drawings
