The American Academy of Pediatrics' Neonatal Resuscitation Program® (NRP®) is an educational program jointly sponsored with the American Heart Association (AHA). The course is designed to teach an evidence-based approach to resuscitation of the newborn to hospital staff who care for newborns at the time of delivery. Since the inception of the NRP® in 1987, over 3 million individuals have been trained and the program has been translated into over 30 languages.

Significantly revised and updated, the new seventh edition of the Textbook of Neonatal Resuscitation® reflects the 2015 AAP/AHA Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care of the Neonate. Two new chapters have been added, covering post-resuscitation care and preparing for resuscitation.

With 140 new colour photographs replacing most of the line drawings in the previous edition, this powerful resource for interactive, simulation-based teaching and learning is better than ever.


The American Academy of Pediatrics is a partner of Pediatric Care Online (PCO UK), a new online decision support tool for all healthcare professionals working with children in the UK. PCO UK provides immediate, evidence-based guidance to inform decisions at point of care - together with a repository of supporting reference material and patient/carer information. It is a UK version of the American Academy of Pediatrics' (AAP) successful Pediatric Care Online tool, which supports primary care providers in the US.
