Simulation to Investigate Effective Airway Positioning in the Neonatal Patient

Posted on 24.11.2022 - 03:08

Neonatal patients are a physiologically unstable and extremely vulnerable patient group. They can deteriorate due to numerous underlying mechanisms, from fulminant sepsis to apneas secondary to prematurity. As with all pediatric patients, the most common cause of cardiac arrest in the neonatal population is secondary to respiratory failure or respiratory arrest. Therefore, staff working with neonatal patients must be proficient in basic airway maneuvers and methods of ensuring adequate airway control and subsequent effective chest wall rise.-
