Sages-femmes et réanimation néonatale : état des lieux des compétences et de leur entretien en Auvergne

Abstract : Neonatal rescucitation is an emergency situation which midwives have to face up to while waiting for the pediatrician. Well every midwife on the spot seems to grasp the situation differently. Our main objective was to assess Auvergne midwives’ skills in neonatal rescucitation. Our secondaries objectives were to analyse training frequency and determine continuous professional development awaiting in neonatal rescucitation. The study in nine public maternity hospitals in Auvergne was transverse and descriptive. 218 questionnaires were given out. The answer rate was 30,3%. Our study showed that neonatal rescucitation was a sitution predominantly rarely met by midwives (60,6%) and more than a half have never practised some of the adequate gestures. The study about midwives’ facility feeling also revealed that scarcely practised gestrures made midwives uncomfortable during management. We found that a strong statistic bound correlates practice and facility in neoatal rescucitation in our sample. Midwives’ knowlegde isn’t quite in adequation with health recommandations (22,85% success for clinical case). The study shows midwives’ interest for medical continuous formation in neonatal rescucitation. A discrepency exists between the skills noticed and the theoretical ones for midwives in Auvergne. A thorough formation should be set up in neonatal rescucitation inside hospital centers or through formation sessions including high fidelity simulation.
