Abstract

Authors’ conclusions: room air has a 27% relative reduction in short-term mortality compared with FiO2 1.0 for initiating neonatal resuscitation ≥35 weeks' gestation.

Reviewers’ commentary: this study indicates that there is a significant reduction in the relative risk of short-term mortality in the group that received room air. It would seem reasonable to start resuscitation in term or near-term newborns with room air if the preductal saturation of O2 is tightly controlled to individually adjust the FiO2 to patient's response.
