Resuscitation: Saving lives is the primary responsibility of secondary care services. Many patients arrive in hospitals when they are acutely ill and are hoping for rescue treatment that will save their lives, but also deal with the primary cause of the acute illness. It is therefore important that all staff involved in the care of such patients is adequately trained and proficient in delivering that service. Resuscitation can be defined as the act of reviving. Many of our patients who are acutely ill do require resuscitation, if further treatment is to be effective and successful. Thus, the necessity for resuscitation is not questionable. In Mulago teaching hospital many children are admitted via the acute care unit (assessment unit) and babies in the maternity unit as well as those in special care baby unit do require resuscitation. In this paper I have tried to discuss the various components of resuscitation, provide experience of the training programme, that has recently been performed and the results.
