Telemedicine for Neonatal Resuscitation
Maintaining high levels of readiness for neonatal resuscitation in low-risk maternity settings is challenging. the neonatal resuscitation program (nrp) algorithm is a community standard in the United States; yet training is biannual, and exposure to enough critical events to be proficient at timely implementation of the algorithm and the advanced procedures is rare. evidence supports hands-free leadership to help prevent task saturation and communication to promote patient safety. telemedicine for neonatal resuscitation involves the addition of remote, expert nrp leadership (a NICU-based neonatal nurse practitioner) via camera link to augment effectiveness of the low-risk birth center team. Unanticipated outcomes to report include faster times to transfer initiation and neuroprotective cooling. the positive impact of remote nrp leadership could lead to use of telemedicine to support teams at birthing centers throughout the United States as well as around the world.
