This new extensively revised and updated 6th edition NRP textbook includes interactive video that reflects the program’s curriculum changes and the 2010 American Academy of Pediatrics and American Heart Association Guidelines for Neonatal Resuscitation. This textbook with extensively updated Neonatal Resuscitation Program materials represent a shift in the approach to the education process, eliminating the lecture-and-slide format and emphasizing a hands-on, interactive, simulation-based learning environment, the NRP coursework now focuses on active learning via realistic simulations. New must-have multimedia teaching and learning materials based on the revised American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) / American Heart Association (AMA) guidelines for neonatal resuscitation help ease the transition to these innovative methodologies. The latest recommendations across key areas of change, as well as: Revisions in the NRP flow diagram, Elimination of evaluation of amniotic fluid in initial rapid assessment, Use of pulse oximetry, Chest compression procedures. Video clips that bring a higher level of interactivity to the learning process with active learning features and multi-decision point scenarios and randomly generated clinical problems and outcomes, dynamic video footage of actual resuscitations, laryngoscopic camera footage, and animated 3-d demonstrations.
