Abstract

An accumulating body of data indicates that optimal newborn resuscitation is not performed with 100% oxygen. On the contrary, ambient air seems to have several advantages compared with supplemental oxygen. Present guidelines on newborn resuscitation should be critically reviewed and revised according to scientific evidence.
