Abstract

The magnitude of inflating pressure necessary for effective resuscitation was examined in 70 preterm infants. The median pressure to cause adequate chest wall expansion was 22.8 cmH2O; no infant required a peak inflating pressure greater than 30 cmH2O. No further increase in inflation pressure was used during resuscitation and the median 5- and 10-min Apgar scores were 8 and 9, respectively.
