With funding from ExxonMobil, VCF’s Survive to Thrive program recently facilitated a pediatric emergency training session for 35 doctors and nurses from medical centers in Dong Giang, Tay Giang, and Nam Giang districts, Quang Nam province, with the main goal of reducing neonatal mortality through improving the healthcare capacities of district health centers in mountainous and remote areas.
This training session provided an opportunity for doctors and nurses to share their knowledge, experiences, and skills in dealing with critical situations involving respiratory failure and pediatric resuscitation, such as the use of CPAP, intubations, and chest compressions. Doctors from Da Nang Maternity and Children’s Hospital also shared information about the Kangaroo Method, which is a vital and effective method for caring for premature, low-weight newborns.
At the end of the training course, along with the equipment sponsored by Survive to Thrive, medical centers in Quang Nam province will have enough equipment, knowledge, and skills to receive and treat children and infants within their immediate community, assisting the program in reducing lethal post-treatment complications and minimizing hospital transfers.
