New Zealand Resuscitation Council Treasurer, Dr Lindsay Mildenhall was recognised in the New Year Honours 2022 and also appointed an Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit for his services to neonatal intensive care and resuscitation training.
Lindsay is passionate about improving outcomes for newborns and he has made a significant contribution through his work in this field. Approximately 10% of newborn babies need resuscitation and support to establish breathing with the intention of improving outcomes and decreasing mortality.
Lindsay’s dedication to his work has seen him take on responsibility for training the instructors who teach the New Zealand Resuscitation Council Newborn Life Support (NLS) curriculum. Lindsay also has been a great resource in the recent updates to our NLS courses.
His commitment to the preparation, writing, and dissemination of ILCOR and ANZCOR newborn resuscitation guidelines has been a great benefit to Aotearoa, Australasia and the world.
