This Neonatal Resuscitation Program Scenario Set contains eleven (11) scenarios that are based on the principles from the Textbook of Neonatal Resuscitation, 6th edition and reflect the 2010 American Academy of Pediatrics and American Heart Association Guidelines for Neonatal Resuscitation. The scenarios address major learning objectives geared toward basic and advanced neonatal resuscitation and promote newborn assessment and management, critical thinking skills, team communication, and adherence to algorithms.
The set contains nine (9) core scenarios and two (2) integrated skills stations (ISS). The nine (9) core scenarios contain timed events that require learners to take critical actions in order to successfully complete the scenarios. The two (2) ISS, one basic and one advanced, are an evaluative component for technical skills during an NRP course. The ISS allows learners to demonstrate their individual resuscitation skills in proper sequence, using correct technique, without coaching or prompting.
The pre-programmed scenario files included with the scenario are compatible with SimPad Automatic Mode and the SimNewB PC Instructor Application respectively, but the scenario can also be used with SimPad Manual mode and the VitalSim remote control.
