Manual of Neonatal Mock Codes by Anne Hansen
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This manual presents a spectrum of training scenarios for first responders in the neonatal unit setting. Mock codes provide a simulated experience of emergency situations with the intention of developing the technical skill, knowledge, critical thinking and teamwork of neonatal practitioners. The philosophy underlying a mock code program is to enhance the confidence of caregivers by practicing emergency techniques in a consequence-free environment. This volume is a landmark contribution to the neonatal literature in that it brings together, for the first time, a compendium of scenarios dealing exclusively with newborns in a variety of acute and critical care situations. A pocket-sized code card summarises the most crucial points for each mock code providing a handy quick-reference review.
