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
This is a protocol.
