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 (Pediatrics. 2021 147[Suppl 1]. doi:10.1542. e2020038505E). 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 2020, are based on the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) Consensus on Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation Science with Treatment Recommendations.. 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://professional.heart.org/ en/science-news/2020-international-consensus-on-cardiopulmonary- resuscitation-science-with-treatment-recommendations). Level of Responsibility The NRP 8th edition curriculum offers 2 NRP provider categories: NRP Essentials: Anyone involved in the care of a newborn should take NRP Essentials, which consists of materials in Lessons 1 through 4. NRP Advanced: This provider option may be appropriate for those who attend births and are responsible for anticipated resuscitation of the newborn with known risk factors and for those who participate in neonatal resuscitation beyond positive-pressure ventilation. The NRP Advanced participant is responsible for material in Lessons 1 through 11. Any learner may study supplemental lessons 12 through 14 but will not be tested on that material. Each facility determines its own policy for who should attain NRP Essentials or Advanced provider status. If most staff participate in births with risk factors and are called to assist with complex resuscitation, then only a small number of select staff with limited responsibilities may be suited to NRP Essentials.
