The day of birth carries the highest risk of death during the whole lifetime of a person. Each year, an estimated 1 million newborns die on their first and only day of life. Another 1 million survive with lifelong neurodevelopmental impairment. The majority of these babies could have been saved with appropriate basic newborn resuscitation. About 10% of newborns need urgent and qualified help at birth, but the lifesaving procedure of newborn resuscitation is difficult to master and is reported to be inadequately performed around the world. Furthermore, the most effective ventilation modes and techniques remain to be established.
Evidence suggests that the implementation of newborn resuscitation training programs improves provider competences and newborn outcomes. However, the optimal time interval between training, and the issue of how teamwork and individual practical skills can be taught and learned, remain unclear. Multi-modal approaches including simulation-based training with emphasis on feedback/debriefing are thought to be the most beneficial modes of learning, and we need more knowledge on efficient strategies of increasing the implementation of such training in busy healthcare services, their transferability to clinical practices, and their impacts on newborn survival rates in different settings.
This Special Issue welcomes submissions which explore advances in newborn resuscitation training, clinical practice, and potential impacts in both high- and low-resource settings.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Children is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
