Newborn Life Support

The Newborn Life Support course (NLS) is a one day course designed for any healthcare professional involved in the delivery and care of the newborn infant. This includes both junior and senior medical and nursing staff, midwives, obstetricians and anaesthetists.

NLS courses have been organised in Malta since 2017 and have all been well attended and received.

The NLS course teaches the knowledge and skills required to approach the management of a newborn infant during the first minutes of life in a competent manner; understand the processes underlying apnoea, bradycardia and poor condition at birth; deliver practical airway management and ventilatory support.
