NRP 7th Edition Out of Hospital Chart

CLICK her for a PDF.  OK to reuse if you cite the source (at bottom of chart)!  Use your own judgment in the care of every newborn.  Adapt for that baby’s needs.  If you need help, call EMS and get it.  This is not a replacement for your NRP program nor does it qualify you to give NRP.  It is a TOOL for people who have taken the NRP course and received their card, primarily directed to students to help you gain an overview.  And finally, this reflects my preference for practice but your preceptor will have their own expectations.
