During a newborn resuscitation, the equipment becomes contaminated with body fluids from the mother and baby. The equipment must be properly cleaned and disinfected before it can be used again. We have developed a set of videos that show the key steps for cleaning resuscitation equipment to make it safe for the baby.
Cleaning Resuscitation Equipment covers the cleaning of equipment using four different methods. There is also a separate film on each of the methods: using an autoclave, boiling, steam, and using a chemical solution.
