Emeritus Consultant Obstetrician
David James Riddell Hutchon has 28 years of experience as a Consultant Obstetrician. In 2003, he realized that clamping the umbilical cord quickly after birth severely disrupted neonatal circulation and interfered with transition. He has published and lectured extensively on the subject and co-operating with UK and international colleagues developed equipment and ways of providing neonatal resuscitation at the side of the mother without clamping the cord. He has co-authored a chapter on neonatal care immediately after birth, co-authored two Cochrane systematic reviews, and has organized five international conferences on the subject of mother side neonatal resuscitation.
