Abstract

For more than 100 years, three principles have guided the treatment of neonatal asphyxia: maintain body heat, free air passages of obstructions, and stimulate respiration by supplying air to the lungs for oxygenation of the blood. This article addresses the question of which gas, air or 100% oxygen, is best supplied to the lungs to stimulate respiration. Evidence-based studies are presented and discussed.
