BACKGROUND Current neonatal resuscitation guidelines recommend using visual assessment of chest wall movements to guide the choice of inflating pressure during positive pressure ventilation (PPV) in the delivery room. The accuracy of this assessment has not been tested. We compared the assessment of chest rise made by observers standing at the infants' head and at the infants' side with measurements of tidal volume. METHODS Airway pressures and expiratory tidal volume (V(Te)) were measured… CONTINUE READING
