Healthcare Professional Training Courses:
The totally redesigned ACLS is for healthcare providers who either direct or participate in the resuscitation of a patient. ACLS emphasizes the importance of basic life support CPR to patient survival; the integration of effective BLS with ACLS interventions; and the importance of effective team interaction and communication during resuscitation.
The goal of the Pediatric Advanced Life Support Course is to provide the learner with information and strategies needed to recognize and prevent cardiopulmonary arrest in infants and children.
This course is designed to teach the skills of CPR for victims of all ages, use of an automated external defibrillator and relief of choking. It is intended for participants who provide heath care to patients in a wide variety of settings.
The new, extensively updated Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) offers education based on the 2015 American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP)/American Heart Association (AHA) “Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care: Neonatal Resuscitation Guidelines.” It is designed for any healthcare professionals involved in the delivery and care of newborns. The 2015 6th edition textbook is available for purchase. You will receive the official AAP/AHA course completion card immediately upon successful completion of the course. If you need to renew prior to a scheduled class, or if our scheduled classes do not provide a date that is convenient for you, please give us a call and we will do our best to accommodate you.
S.T.A.B.L.E. is the most widely distributed and implemented neonatal education program to focus exclusively on the post-resuscitation/pre-transport stabilization care of sick infants. Based on a mnemonic to optimize learning, retention and recall of information, S.T.A.B.L.E. stands for the six assessment and care modules in the program: Sugar, Temperature, Airway, Blood pressure, Lab work, and Emotional support. A seventh module, Quality Improvement stresses the professional responsibility of improving and evaluating care provided to sick infants.

Ventilator And Tracheostomy Care
A ventilator is a special machine used to mechanically pump air, or designated oxygen, into a patient. If a child has a special condition requiring additional oxygen or a breathing aid, then a ventilator is often used. A ventilator not only carries oxygen into the lungs of the patient, it also transports waste materials (i.e. carbon dioxide) out of the lungs.
There are several ways in which a ventilator may be used, depending on the extent of the breathing difficulty of the patient and the structural integrity of the respiratory system, primarily the trachea. If the individual has problems breathing on their own accord, the ventilator can be set to “breathe for” the patient. Even though the ventilator is primarily used for pushing air into the lungs, it can also be used to initiate an exhale, although this function is not as commonly used.
A tracheostomy is most commonly performed when an airway is blocked, a patient cannot breathe on their own, there is fluid in the lungs, or the patient has a severe injury. It is implemented in patients who have health issues that require the aid of a ventilator to help with long term breathing.
In essence, a tracheotomy is performed when an opening is created through the neck and into the trachea to provide access to the lungs. The actual incision that is created is known as a tracheostomy. After the opening is created, a tracheostomy tube is placed into the opening to remove any excess fluid from the lungs.
A tracheostomy tube requires continued care. This is something that your NNR home care nurse will teach surrounding family members. However, most of the tracheostomy care, cleaning, and placement can be completed by your home care nurse. Tracheostomy care includes:
Inspecting the tube and accessories for any defects
Inspecting the stoma (opening) and surrounding skin for irritation or infection
Proper placement of the tube
Along with routine tracheostomy care, National Nursing and Rehab provide a variety of other home health care services, including pediatric, adult, and senior in home care.
