Abstract

  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 the provision of initial sustained (greater than 1 second duration) inflations reduce mortality and morbidity?

Subgroup analysis will be performed to determine

  • the safety and efficacy of sustained inflations during resuscitation in subgroups of term (37 weeks gestation and above) and preterm (less than 37 weeks) infants
  • the safety and efficacy of sustained inflations during resuscitation in subgroups determined by the type of ventilation device used (self-inflating bag, flow-inflating bag, T-piece, mechanical ventilator)
  • the safety and efficacy of sustained inflations during resuscitation in subgroups determined by the interface (ie. face mask, endotracheal tube, nasopharyngeal tube) used
  • the safety and efficacy of sustained inflations during resuscitation in subgroups determined by the duration of the sustained inflation - ie. greater than one second to five seconds, greater than five seconds
