Neonatal Airway

Neonatal Airway

Our Neonatal Airway elearning course gives an introduction to the use of premedication for neonatal intubation.

Successful management of the neonatal airway is an essential skill during resuscitation and respiratory deterioration of babies. Airway management in this age group is challenging due to several factors:

  • The size shape and immaturity of the neonatal airway and respiratory system.
  • The availability of appropriately sized airway equipment for all neonates including the most premature.
  • The speed of onset of hypoxia and bradycardia during airway procedures compared with older children or adults.
  • Clinical staff have reduced opportunity to develop more advanced airway skills such as intubation.

Suitable for all healthcare professionals who intubate or assist with intubation of babies, this high-quality elearning module explores the importance of premedication in preparation for neonatal intubation and consider the effects and potential side-effects of the drugs which are used for this purpose.
