xi Neonatal Resuscitation Program® Provider Course Overview Neonatal Resuscitation Scientific Guidelines The Neonatal Resuscitation Program® (NRP®) materials are based on the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and American Heart Association (AHA) Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care of the Neonate (Circulation. 2015 132:S543-S560). A reprint of the Guidelines appears in the Appendix. Please refer to the Guidelines if you have any questions about the rationale for the current program recommendations. The Guidelines, originally published in October 2015, are based on the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) consensus on science statement. The evidence-based reviews prepared by members of ILCOR, which serve as the basis for both documents, can be viewed in the Web-based integrated guidelines site (https:// eccguidelines.heart.org/index.php/circulation/cpr-ecc-guidelines-2/). Level of Responsibility The NRP Provider Course consists of 11 lessons, and participants are required to complete all 11 lessons to receive an NRP Course Completion Card. Even though not all newborn health care providers can perform all steps in resuscitation, they may be called to help a team and need to be familiar with each step. Special Note: Neonatal resuscitation is most effective when performed by a designated and coordinated team. It is important for you to know the neonatal resuscitation responsibilities of team members who are working with you. Periodic practice among team members will facilitate coordinated and effective care of the newborn. NRP eSim NRP eSim is a new online neonatal resuscitation simulation exercise required for achieving NRP provider status with the 7th edition. The eSim methodology allows learners to integrate the NRP flow diagram steps in a virtual environment. For additional information on eSim, including Web browser requirements, visit www.aap.org/nrp.
