Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) office in Turkey recently organised a course on neonatal resuscitation programme (NRP) to develop scientific skills and experience among the personnel of its health projects in Syria as well as other medical institutions.
Held at the Union of Syrian Civil Society Organisations (USYCSO) in Bab Alhawa, Turkey, the two-day course was directed to the nurses and midwives who work at obstetrics and gynaecology departments, to update their information about NRP techniques.
The course was attended by 72 midwives and nurses, including 23 from QRCS’s healthcare centres in Syria and 10 from other partners such as the Syrian American Medical Society (SAMS), the Syrian Expatriate Medical Association (SEMA), International Humanitarian Relief (IHR), and others. There were also 39 nurses from the Academy of Medical Sciences, Eastern Ghouta, Rif Dimashq, who attended the training via videoconference.
Several significant topics were discussed in the event, including NRP basics, initiation of resuscitation, nasal intermittent positive pressure ventilation (NIPPV), closed chest cardiac massage, endotracheal intubation, use of drugs in resuscitation, and ethical issues of resuscitation.
Such courses give the medical and technical personnel a lot of medical skills and knowledge introduced by the latest scientific research and journals in the world, enhancing their experience and proficiency.
Neonatal asphyxia is responsible for 20% of the overall neonatal mortality rate. This course was crucial for the trainees to integrate NRP best practices in their work.
