Effects of targeting higher versus lower arterial oxygen saturations on death or disability in preterm infants

  • Protocol
  • Intervention



This is a protocol for a Cochrane Review (Intervention). The objectives are as follows:

  1. What are the effects of targeting higher versus lower oxygen ranges on death or major neonatal and infant morbidities, or both, in extremely preterm infants?

  2. Do these effects differ in different types of infants, including those born at a very early gestational age, outborn, without antenatal corticosteroid coverage, male gender, small for gestational age, multiple birth or by mode of delivery?
