October 2017: Helping Babies Breathe training can improve neonatal resuscitation
Helping Babies Breathe (HBB) is a neonatal resuscitation programme that is designed to train health professionals in low-resource settings. A study by Rule et al showed that 10 months after HBB training in a rural referral hospital in Kenya, the suspected hypoxic-ischaemic encephalopathy (SHIE) rate had decreased by 53% to 7.1/1,000. However, the rates increased after the initial decline and investigations revealed that half of the midwives who received HBB training had been transferred. When the data were presented to healthcare administration personnel this improved staff retention and the SHIE rate then decreased again. Enweronu-Laryea and Robertson comment on the study. Readers may also be interested in the editorial by Niermeyer, who comments on Wrammert et al’s paper on an HBB project in Nepal, which was published in the previous issue.
