    Newborn Care Learning Message #4

    Correct mask ventilation to achieve good chest movement is the most important step in neonatal resuscitation.

    Infants who do not breathe well after drying need urgent resuscitation. The most important step in basic resuscitation is to provide adequate ventilation. While many of these infants were intubated in the past, the modern approach is to provide skilled mask ventilation. This is method is promoted in the international “Helping Babies Breathe” project which is being widely implemented for basic newborn resuscitation in South Africa. 90% of all infants who do not breathe well at birth can be successfully resuscitated with mask ventilation alone.

    A correct fitting mask and neonatal ventilation bag, such as a Laerdal set, is essential. It is also important that all health care workers who manage infants at delivery learn the clinical skills of bag and mask ventilation. This is best done with a teacher in small groups using a resuscitation model. Make sure that the infant’s chest moves well.

    Some larger hospitals use a Neopuff to provide mask ventilation.
