RETAIN Labs Medical developed REsuscitation TrAIning for Neonatal Healthcare Providers, a system that combines low-cost resuscitation simulators into copyrighted computer and board games. The simulator uses evidence-based data from real-life resuscitations to enhance the practice of the neonatal resuscitation algorithm from any computer, smartphone or tablet, anywhere in the world. Approximately 13 to 26 million infants worldwide require neonatal resuscitation at birth, with around one million of these infants dying annually. Better neonatal resuscitation training prevents infant deaths.
