Palm Desert Resuscitation Education (PDRE) and the Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) Steering Committee have been following diligently the steady stream of NRP Instructor Updates for the Fall and Winter Seasons of 2018. These fresh revised guidelines and recommendations for “Newborn Resuscitation” obviously come from the Members of the NRP Steering Committee and the American Heart Association (AHA) developed the 2015 United States (U.S.) Guidelines for Neonatal Resuscitation. The most recent guidelines are also reprinted in the appendix of the Textbook of Neonatal Resuscitation, 7th edition. Palm Desert Resuscitation Education (PDRE) and the NRP education materials via these scholarly provider manuals translate these prominent guidelines and recommendations into medical and clinical practice.

This is actually Part 1 of a three-part series regarding newborn suctioning in the delivery room.

Opioid Toxicity and Antidote Training

June 1st, 2017|0 Comments

According to the 2016 Facts and Figures of Opioid Addiction from the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM), the Schedule II/IIN Controlled Narcotic Substances (2/2N) – such as oxycodone, hydrocodone, codeine, morphine, fentanyl and others – chemically interact with opioid receptors on nerve cells in the central nervous system (CNS) and peripheral nervous system (PNS) to produce the pleasurable effects and pain relief that a normal over-the-counter analgesic (i.e., acetaminophen and ibuprofen/NSAID) may not alleviate. These strong opioid analgesics or “pain killers” when combined dangerously with benzodiazepines (e.g., alprazolam/Xanax and lorazepam/Ativan, and diazepam/Valium), alcohol, and other sedating agents may cause not only constipation (paralytic ileus), dependence and withdrawal symptoms but also life-threatening respiratory depression (apnea), arrest, and failure in addition to circulatory depression, hypotensive shock and subsequent cardiac arrest. Yes, they are a necessity when one has had major surgery and/or severe trauma for a certain limited time only, as in a few days or even a couple of weeks, or as much as it is allowed to contain one’s severe subjective pain, which may be difficult for a clinician to objectively determine.

Happy Halloween: Halloween Month Trivia

November 2nd, 2016|0 Comments

Happy Halloween: Halloween Month Trivia. As Halloween is approaching this October 31, 2016 and some children and even adults are preparing for their “trick-or-treat” costumes and indulgence of candy, most probably do not know that there’s a story behind one of the most recognizable and distinctive faces in the CPR manikins that the majority of American Heart Association (AHA) CPR and ECC instructors and maybe some other folks know to be called just “Anne.” It’s interesting that some coaches teach the CPR courses by first explaining and demonstrating the Basic Life Support (BLS) survey on adult, child, or infant; begin by checking for scene safety; and then turn to assessing for responsiveness by tapping the victim or patient saying “Anne, Anne!!! Are you OK?”
