Abstract

Medication use during neonatal resuscitation is uncommon. The infrequent use of resuscitation medications has impeded rigorous investigations to determine the most effective agents and/or dosing regimens. The medications most commonly used during delivery room resuscitation include epinephrine, sodium bicarbonate, naloxone hydrochloride and volume expanders. The available evidence for each of these medications is reviewed in this article.
