Please note that the NRP Online Evaluation is an examination and not a study session.
The applicant must study prior to beginning the examination.
Finally and Most Importantly: You will need to study the Performance Checklists for Lesson 2, 3, and 4 and be ready to demonstrate that you can perform these skills. You can find the Performance Checklists at the end of Lessons 2, 3 and 4. If you do not have access to a mannequin to practice with, you can use a doll. Follow the flow charts on the Performance Checklists.
Be sure you know the following:
- The four assessment questions. Is the baby term? Is there meconium? Is the baby breathing or crying? Is there good muscle tone?
- What to do if meconium is present.
- What are the three ways to tell if a baby is vigorous?
- What are the “Initial Steps”?
- What three things do you evaluate the infant for during resuscitation?
- What to do if the chest does not rise during PPV.
We are excited to have a very high tech mannequin at this workshop that you will get to practice resuscitation with.
SimNewB is an interactive simulator, designed by Laerdal with the American Academy of Pediatrics to meet the training requirements of the Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP). With realistic newborn traits and lifelike clinical feedback, SimNewB helps neonatal healthcare providers improve team dynamics, build confidence, and practice in a risk-free environment.
SimNewB accurately represents a full-term, 50th percentile newborn female, measuring 21 inches and weighing 7 lbs.
A wide variety of conditions can be simulated ranging from a limp, cyanotic newborn with no vital signs, to a moving, crying, vigorous newborn.
The airway is designed to allow for training in all aspects of newborn airway management, including the use of positive-pressure airway devices, and the placement of ET Tubes and LMAs.
The patent umbilicus has a life-like pulse that can be assessed, cut and catheterized for IV access.
Pre-programmed scenarios provide standardized training while customizable scenarios and real-time instructor control allows adaptation to meet individual student's needs.
