This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:
In newly born infants resuscitated with intermittent positive pressure ventilation, does PPV via an endotracheal tube as compared to a face mask reduce mortality and morbidity?
Planned subgroup analyses:
gestational age: term (37 weeks gestation and above), preterm (less than 37 weeks) infants
professional category or experience of resuscitator
