Do you want to know how to stabilize newborns with an intact umbilical cord? Join our Concord Talk on April 6, with Ronny Knol, neonatologist at Erasmus Medical Center. As a special guest, Bram Dees, will share his experience as a parent of his daughter Lara, who was supported on the Concord Birth Trolley.

The new ERC guidelines 2021 are now acknowledging the importance cord clamping. Compared to the 2015 guidelines, ERC NLS 2021 recommends that cord clamping should ideally take place after the lungs are aerated. Where adequate thermal care and initial resuscitation interventions can be safely undertaken with the cord intact, it may be possible to delay clamping whilst performing these interventions.

Together with Prof. Arjan te Pas, Ronny Knol coordinates the Aeration, Breathing and then Clamping (ABC) trial on PBCC. In this Concord Talk, Ronny Knol will educate us on the practical aspects how to aerate the lungs and stabilize the baby before clamping the umbilical cord in accordance with ERC NL 2021.
