Pulse oximetry sensor application for neonates during resuscitation

Primary objective: To evaluate the effect of pulse oximetry sensor application on all-cause mortality, hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy and other neonatal complications in neonates requiring monitoring in the delivery room.

Secondary objectives: Secondary analyses will be undertaken to evaluate the effect of pulse oximetry sensor application in the following subgroups:

  1. Gestational age (< 33 weeks and ≥ 33 weeks)
  2. Need for positive pressure ventilation as part of resuscitation
  3. Generation of pulse oximeter
  4. Manufacturer of the pulse oximeter
  5. Need for supplemental oxygen during resuscitation/stabilization

This is a protocol.
