This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:
To evaluate the effect of routine oropharyngeal/nasopharyngeal suction compared to no suction on mortality and morbidity in newly born infants with and without meconium-stained liquor.
Planned subgroup analyses:
- gestational age: term infants (≥ 37 weeks' gestation), preterm infants (28 to 36 weeks' gestation), very preterm infants (< 28 weeks' gestation);
- mode of delivery (vaginal birth; caesarean section);
- vigorous; non-vigorous infants;
- meconium-stained amniotic fluid; non-meconium-stained amniotic fluid;
- timing of suction (perineum-intrapartum; post-delivery);
- method of suction (bulb syringe; suction catheter).
