Burhans, Maia Dorsett, and Kara Louise LaBarge demonstrate skills that you will want to practice with your response team before your next obstetrical emergency occurs.

Brick by Brick: Neonatal Resuscitation for EMS Providers
In this lesson, you will be able to compare the difference between the unplanned delivery of a thriving full-term baby to that of a preterm baby who is not breathing. There are very few calls for service in which responders may alter as many years of health and well-being as may be done with Neonatal Resuscitation. After completing this training, we believe you will be better prepared to care for both the mother and the newborn.
