Effect of skill drills on neonatal ventilation performance in a simulated setting- observation study in Nepal.

ABSTRACT: Aim: Maintaining neonatal resuscitation skills among health workers in low resource settings will require continuous quality improvement efforts. We aimed to evaluate the effect of skill drills and feedback on neonatal resuscitation and the optimal number of skill drills required to maintain the ventilation skill in a simulated setting.

Methods: An observational study was conducted for a period of 3?months in a referral hospital of Nepal. Sixty nursing staffs were trained on Helping Babies Breathe (HBB) 2.0 and daily skill drills using a high-fidelity manikin. The high-fidelity manikin had different clinical case scenarios and provided feedback as "well done" or "improvement required" based on the ventilation performance. Adequate ventilation was defined as bag-and-mask ventilation at the rate of 40-60 breaths per minute. The effective ventilation was defined as adequate ventilation with a "well done" feedback. We assessed the correlation of number skill drills and clinical case scenario with adequate ventilation rate using pearson's correlation. We assessed the correlation of number of skill dills performed by each participant with effective ventilation using Mann Whitney test.

Results: Among the total of 60 nursing staffs, all of them were competent with an average score of 12.73?±?1.09 out of 14 (p?
Conclusion: In a simulated setting, participants who had an average skill drill of 8 in 3 months had effective ventilation. We demonstrated optimal skill drill sessions for maintain the neonatal resuscitation competency. Further evaluation will be required to validate the findings in a scale up setting.
