This study investigated whether the use of a respiratory monitor during simulated neonatal resuscitation reduced leak at the face mask. It showed the leak was more than halved, being reduced from 27% to 11% when 25 participants used the monitor to identify and correct the mask leak.

    Although survival has improved significantly in recent years, prematurity remains a major cause of infant and childhood mortality and morbidity. Preterm births (<37 weeks of gestation) account for 8% of live births representing >50,000 live births each year in the UK. Preterm birth, irrespective...

    Objective: To test the hypothesis that male compared with female prematurely born infants would have worse lung function at follow up. Design: Prospective follow up study.

    Background: During volume guarantee (VG) ventilation the peak inflating pressure (PIP) for each ventilator inflation is adjusted to ensure the expired tidal volume (VTe) is close to the set VTe. Differences in the PIP between inflations triggered by the infant's inspirations and untriggered...

    The article discusses the process initiated by the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) in revising the guidelines on newborn resuscitation. The most notable change in the guidelines is using air to initiate resuscitation at birth although, due to lack of evidence, the...

    Premature and low birth weight infants often require neonatal oral intubation for resuscitation and to relieve respiratory distress. The endotracheal tube exerts pressure on the developing palate, which can result in palatal groove formation, a high-arched palate, and palatal asymmetry. The...
