Dealing with unsuccessful neonatal resuscitation


NHS Education for Scotland (NES)

Whilst most neonatal resuscitations are successful, sometimes babies are born too sick to survive. This video offers a communication guide for all healthcare staff who may deal with this situation or care for families after a neonatal death. The areas covered include, preparing parents for what they may see during the resuscitation, breaking the news honestly and clearly, providing information and support, introducing memory making, taking a baby home after death and the importance of debrief to support the team involved.
