The Singapore National Resuscitation Council’s Neonatal and Paediatric Resuscitation Workgroup, 2010?011
Correspondence: A/Prof Ng Kee Chong, email@example.com
We present the revised guidelines for newborn and paediatric resuscitation for Singapore. The 2010 International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation consensus on science as well as the main recommendations from the European Resuscitation Council and American Heart Association were debated and discussed. The final recommendations for the Singapore National Resuscitation Council were derived after carefully reviewing the current available evidence in the literature and balancing the local clinical climate of practice. In addition, much effort was spent on aligning the paediatric and neonatal recommendations with the adult (especially Basic Cardiac Life Support) recommendations.
