Abstract:

This lecture will create a clear visual image and understanding of what is happening for the baby as she takes her first breaths and shifts from oxygenating through the placenta and cord to beginning to use her lungs. Participants will learn when, why and how they need to assist a newborn in respiratory distress or in need of neonatal resuscitation.
