Department of Kaumarabhritya, Mahatma Gandhi Ayurved College, Hospital and Research Centre (MGACHRC), Salod(H), Wardha had organized BNCRP part 1 basic neonatal resuscitation training program on March 4, 2020. BNCRP is a basic neonatal care and newborn resuscitation program. It has been undertaken by Indian Academy of Pediatrics (IAP) and National Neonatology Forum (NNF), Mumbai. Program was started with registration and breakfast. First, pretest was conducted. All participants were reached timely and they were keen to learn neonatal resuscitation. So, program was started timely.
This program was inaugurated by Lead Instructor Dr. Manish Jain, Prof. Pediatrics, Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences (MGIMS), Sevagram, Wardha at 9.00 AM. The other dignitaries present on this occasion were Dr. Shridhar Jadhav, Dr. Sachin Patil, Dr. Sonali Shirbhate, Dr. Pritesh Khatwar, Dr. Renu Rathi, organizing chairman, and course co-coordinator.
The inauguration program was started with Saraswati and Dhanvantari Stavan. Later guests lit the traditional lamp. All the dignitaries on the dice were felicitated with a flower. The program proceeds with introductory speech by Dr. Renu Rathi, Professor, Department of Kaumarabhritya, MGACHRC, Salod(H), Wardha. She briefly took the review of importance of resuscitation, which is a lifesaving, noninvasive, simple but miraculous tool. There are many neurological complications such as global delay, hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy and even death, if not resuscitate timely. She enlightened the significance of assuming every delivery as an asphyxiated one to be prepared for the golden 1 min to reduce infant mortality rate as well as prevention of complications. Dr. Manish Jain, Lead Instructor has expressed his concern about dissemination of such noble training programs. He articulated an easiest way to reduce infant mortality with resuscitation as it is difficult to tackle different interventions to treat prematurity and sepsis, which are three major reasons of mortality. [Figure no 1] is showing banner with instructors.
A total of 40 participants comprising 11 ayurvedic faculty doctors, 19 ayurvedic postgraduate students (maximum from Department of Kaumarabhritya), and 10 BAMS (Bachelor of Ayurvedic Medicine and Surgery) interns were divided into four work stations and one instructor was allotted to each station. As this training requires much space for the arrangement of 5 stations with 8 chairs and 5 tables in a single big hall for ease to perform and demonstrate hence middle 2 partitions were opened. The first session started with “preparation of birth” demonstrated by Dr. Shridhar Jadhav with other instructors. After that, each participant performed the same scenario in front of instructor at respective work stations individually. Later on, demonstrations of “routine care and initial steps” were organized by instructors. Every session was demonstrated in front of all participants and later on they were dispersed to their work stations for their performance evaluation [Figure 2]. Lunch break was given after two sessions. Then last session included brief ventilation, prolong ventilation with normal heart rate, and slow heart rate. Thereafter, thorough revision of “steps in resuscitating a newborn baby” was demonstrated from first to last step and queries were solved by all instructors. Subsequently performance evaluation of every participant how to care a newborn as well as how to resuscitate to an asphyxiated newborn till achievement of skill was conducted by instructors with submission of posttest. Result was declared with all successful. The [Figure 3] shows successful participants of BNCRP-1 with instructors.
