The Newborn Life Support (NLS) Provider course has been developed, under the auspices of the Resuscitation Council (UK), to provide clear practical instruction in airway support and the theoretical background to illustrate its importance in resuscitation of babies at birth. It is designed to increase the level of practical skills in airway control amongst the people most frequently called upon for first response.
Aim of the NLS course
To give first responders the background knowledge and skills to competently manage the resuscitation of a newborn infant during the first 10 to 20 minutes This is achieved by concentrating on effective teaching of practical airway management and ventilation support.
One aim of this course is to reduce the anxiety of those entering or working in areas where resuscitation of newborn babies may occur. It hopes to achieve this by imparting appropriate knowledge and providing an opportunity to practice the relevant skills before they have to be used in real life.
