BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Stabilization of preterm infants after birth frequently requires oxygen supplementation. At present the optimal initial oxygen inspiratory fraction (Fio2) for preterm stabilization after birth is still under debate. We aimed to compare neurodevelopmental outcomes of extremely preterm infants at 24 months corrected age randomly assigned to be stabilized after birth with an initial Fio2 of 0.3 versus 0.6 to 0.65 in 3 academic centers from Spain and the Netherlands… CONTINUE READING
