ENRIQUEZ, Diego et al. Basic cardiopulmonary resuscitation courses for parents of newborns and infants. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2014, vol.112, n.2, pp.192-197. ISSN 0325-0075.

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) courses meet all the definitions of an educational activity for prevention of cardiac arrest death by risk patients' parents and/or the general population. The aim is to improve patients' home care and turn parents confident before their children are discharged from hospital, mainly from intensive care units. Currently these courses are part of discharge protocols in many neonatologist services although there are offers that exceed this target, and extend to other areas such as education and caregivers. Locally the experience of neonatal CPR at the Sociedad Argentina de Pediatría stands out in connection with delivering courses to high risk patients' parents as well as designing and spreading learning material.

Keywords : Education; Training in cardiopulmonary resuscitation; Parents; Newborn; Infants; Basic cardiac life support.
