Skill Training Haydom Hospital

The first few minutes after the birth of an infant or premature baby can be as life-threatening as life-changing.

Dr Theresa teaches a team of doctors and nurses of the premature unit and obstetrics  life-saving first aid procedures.

Together, they simulate scenarios of various birth complications and practice resuscitation and ventilation of a newborn in the event of an emergency. The team also learns how to establish safe intravenous access via the umbilical vessels, for which they train on real umbilical cords.

Everyone had great fun and achieved maximum success, so they are prepared for emergencies.
