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
