Head midline position for preventing the occurrence or extension of germinal matrix-intraventricular hemorrhage in preterm infants

Primary objective

To assess whether head midline position compared with any other head position is more effective in prevention or extension of germinal matrix-intraventricular hemorrhage in infants born at ≤ 32 weeks' gestational age.

Secondary objectives

To perform subgroup analyses regarding gestational age, birth weight, intubated versus not intubated, and with or without GM-IVH at trial entry (see Subgroup analysis and investigation of heterogeneity).

This is a protocol.
