The tissues affected first include the heart, muscle, and brain. UT Southwestern Medical Center is widely recognized as one of the nation’s leading centers for neonatal-perinatal care, teaching, and research.

The Division also has several weekly Neonatology conferences and didactic opportunities. A multicenter randomized trial showed that intrapartum suctioning of meconium does not reduce the risk of meconium aspiration syndrome. 20 Intrapartum suctioning is not recommended with clear or meconium-stained amniotic fluid. 1, 2, 5, 6 A randomized trial showed that endotracheal suctioning of vigorous* infants born through meconium-stained amniotic fluid is not beneficial. 21 Endotracheal suctioning of vigorous* infants is not recommended. 1, 2, 5, 6 Endotracheal suctioning of nonvigorous infants born through meconium-stained amniotic fluid may be useful. 1, 2, 5 A nonrandomized trial showed that endotracheal suctioning did not decrease the incidence of meconium aspiration syndrome or mortality. 22 Ventilation using a flow-inflating bag, self-inflating bag, or T-piece device can be effective. 23 A self-inflating bag, flow-inflating bag, or T-piece device can be used to deliver positive pressure ventilation. 1, 6 The primary objective of neonatal resuscitation is effective ventilation; an increase in heart rate indicates effective ventilation. 24 Auscultation should be the primary means of assessing heart rate, and in infants needing respiratory support, the goal should be to check the heart rate by auscultation and by pulse oximetry. 6 Initial PIP of 20 cm H2O may be effective, but a PIP of 30 to 40 cm H2O may be necessary in some infants to achieve or maintain a heart rate of more than 100 bpm. 5 Ventilation rates of 40 to 60 breaths per minute are recommended. 5, 6 A prospective study showed that the use of an exhaled carbon dioxide detector is useful to verify endotracheal intubation. 25 Use of an exhaled carbon dioxide detector in term and preterm infants is recommended to confirm endotracheal tube placement. 5, 6 A randomized study showed similar success in providing effective ventilation using either laryngeal mask airway or endotracheal tube. 26 Laryngeal mask airway should be considered if bag and mask ventilation is unsuccessful, and if endotracheal intubation is unsuccessful or not feasible. 5, 6 Use of CPAP for resuscitating term infants has not been studied. 5 No evidence exists to support or refute the use of mask CPAP in term infants. 2, 5 No studies have examined PEEP vs. no PEEP when positive pressure ventilation is used after birth. 5 PEEP should be used if suitable equipment is available, such as a flow-inflating bag or T-piece device. 5 There is a reduction of mortality and no evidence of harm in term infants resuscitated with 21 percent compared with 100 percent oxygen. 5, 6, 27 Delivery rooms should have a pulse oximeter readily available. 5 – 7 A pulse oximeter is recommended when supplemental oxygen, positive pressure ventilation, or CPAP is used. 5 – 7 Supplemental oxygen should be administered using an air/oxygen blender. 5 – 7 It is recommended to begin resuscitation with 21 percent oxygen, and increase the concentration of oxygen (using an air/oxygen blender) if oxygen saturation is low 5 – 7 (see Figure 1 ).
