Karen Strange presents A Matter of Life and Death: Preparing for Confident and Fear-Free Neonatal Resuscitation for Out-of-Hospital Birth

In this lecture, Karen sheds light on the most common failures and misconceptions that come up in neonatal resuscitation. She'll explain the key failures as well as the key components to successfully breathing for a newborn. Karen has accumulated over 900 hours of case reviews surrounding neonatal resuscitation. She focuses on what gets missed, what is misunderstood and the role that fear and panic plays. You'll leave this lecture feeling a new sense of clarity and deep confidence in how you respond to babies at birth.

Karen Strange presents 'Neonatal Transitional Physiology (optimal cord clamping) and how the first few breaths clear fetal lung fluid' at the Improving Neonatal Care Session.

In the past few years, there’s been an abundance of information regarding the benefits of leaving the cord intact. Yet, immediate cord clamping is the standard of care, throughout most of the world, including resource poor areas. This lecture focuses on Transitional Physiology (optimal cord clamping) and how the first few breaths clear the fluid in the lungs.

Having an actual visual representation (mental map) of the physiological path of blood into the heart and lungs will better prepare midwives in “knowing normal” and how to respond in all birth scenarios, including when to and when not to take action. Ventilation of the lungs, by the midwife, is the most important and effective action, in slow transitioning babies and those in respiratory distress.

This lecture will expand the current understanding of what happens when the cord is left intact, incorporating the physiology of clearing the newborn’s fluid filled lungs in the first few breaths and what happens with the blood, before, during, and after baby is born.
