Helping Babies Breathe

 

Some one million babies die each year from birth asphyxia (inability to breathe immediately after delivery), chiefly in resource-limited locations. Helping Babies Breathe (HBB)  is an evidence-based educational program to teach neonatal resuscitation techniques in such settings. It was developed on the premise that assessment at birth and simple newborn care can save many lives.

 

The HBB curriculum is designed to be used as part of a coordinated educational approach to early neonatal care and can be effectively combined with other curricula. It can be locally taught to birth attendants in diverse venues and locations. HBB focuses on practices that all persons who care for babies at birth can learn to care for healthy babies and/or assist babies who do not breathe on their own. This one day Master Trainer/facilitator class is for those seeking to implement the Helping Babies Breathe program in conjunction with local, regional and national health initiatives in resource limited settings.

 

HBB is an initiative of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO), US Agency for International Development (USAID), Saving Newborn Lives, the National Institute of Child Health and Development, and a number of other global health organizations.

 

Ultrasound For Low-Resource Healthcare

 

Quality medical care in low-resource settings is often hampered by lack of objective clinical information. Ultrasound has proven to be a particularly useful technology in such settings, providing vital data to support patient care decision-making. What’s more, technical advances are making ultrasound equipment ever more transportable, affordable, and accessible.

 

The INMED Ultrasound for Low-Resource Healthcare Course is a hybrid course that combines online preparation with a one-day in-classroom event that provides didactic and hands-on skills in non-obstetric ultrasound imaging, including thyroid, venous and DVT screening, vascular and carotid, abdominal and renal, cardiac and thoracic. Each participant will be supervised in learning normal scan planes, ultrasound techniques, and equipment control. Practical issues in obtaining and maintaining ultrasound equipment will also be addressed.
