  2. Abstract

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 resuscitation with:

  • any type of manual ventilation device (self-inflating bag, flow-inflating bag or T-piece) as compared with another
  • any model of a particular type of manual ventilation device (eg. Laerdal vs. Ambu) as compared with another

reduce mortality and morbidity?

Subgroup analysis will be performed to determine

  • the safety and efficacy of types or models of manual ventilation devices in term (37 weeks gestation and above) and preterm (less than 37 weeks) infants
