Book Description

May 15, 2011 1581104987 978-1581104981 Sixth Edition, None

  • Changes in the NRP™ Algorithm
  • Elimination of Evaluation of Amniotic Fluid in Initial Rapid Assessment
  • Use of Supplemental Oxygen During Neonatal Resuscitation
  • Use of Pulse Oximetry

4.0 out of 5 stars A good update of a classic text. June 23, 2011
The latest edition of the NRP test published in May 2011. The format is similar to previous editions and is intended to give the basic approach to resuscitation of the newborn. The objectives of the text are to standardize care of the newborn. On completion of the text one will then be able to take the online test prior to the practical course scenarios given in a live class. Fortunately the old lecture format for the knowledge section of NRP certification is a thing of the past.

The positives:

Basic building block approach
Simple concise language
Controversies discussed
Science and research based on best evidence
DVD with book gives great examples
More emphasis this time on communication and rehersals.

This will not replace Mark Twain or Jane Austin as great writing
May be tedious for those who have taken the course before
Still teaches intubation skills which are difficult to learn by models.

The authors deserve credit for updating a classic text that is required reading for those taking the initial or renewal course in NRP.

5.0 out of 5 stars Neonatal Resuscition 6th Edition through Amazon October 1, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Whenever a new edition comes out, I like to purchase my own for constant review and referral during
the years it is current. The DVD that comes with this book has helpful reenactments to help visualize the flow chart in most situations. As true in previous editions, the book is layed out in such a way to promote easy understanding and reinforcement.

This edition definitely is worth buying due to the new changes. It's just not the same old same.

Further, the time it took to get the book and the condition were both excellent.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good until.... August 14, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Disappointed with DVD-rom! Book was good with better organization than previous edition BUT surprise DVD snafu. Description claims that DVD-rom compatible with Windows OR Mac. I had everything that "requirements" section listed. Imagine my surprise when it didn't work. When I called Amer. Acad. of Pediatrics, they informed me that newest upgrade of Mac systems was NOT compatible with DVD-rom. [A disclaimer might have been useful before I made purchase]. Their suggestion: use Windows or just use book portion without the DVD. Oh...OK. I'll just blink (like "I Dream of Jeanie") and conjure up an extra Windows computer. Noooo problem :o/

1.0 out of 5 stars Neonatal Resuscitation DVD September 12, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Neonatal Resuscitation Textbook [With DVD ROM] 6 Pap/DVD editionThank God the text book was informative and comprehensible; because the DVD didn't work. The DVD is a vital learning tool needed to help me practice and improve my technique in neonatal resuscitation; in my profession as a RN in L&D and Mother/Baby. I wrote a letter to requesting another copy thru their complaints department online; to no avail. I spoke to someone at the publishing company; but no one was able to assist me in getting a new copy. The neonatal resuscitation DVD is a critical learning tool I can use for years to come; so I would really appreciate someone helping me get a new copy that has no defects.

5.0 out of 5 stars NRP text book March 3, 2012
By karen
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I like to have my own text books for classes I have to take at the hospital. That way I can refer to them any time I want. This was cheaper than purchasing thru the hospital and AHA. This is the same issue that we are using. I received the book sooner than I anticipated. I am very pleased with the NRP book and Amazon.
