Special Issue "Emerging Concepts in Neonatal Resuscitation"
A special issue of Children (ISSN 2227-9067).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (28 February 2019).
According to WHO, birth asphyxia is thought to account for four million deaths worldwide every year. Approximately a third of all deaths below five years of age occur secondary to perinatal asphyxia. Many of these deaths can be prevented with basic neonatal resuscitation maneuvers aimed at effectively ventilating the lung.
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the American Heart Association (AHA), along with similar bodies from other countries, evaluate resuscitation science through the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR). This Special Issue focuses on emerging concepts in neonatal resuscitation—science of resuscitation, improvement in education techniques and dissemination of knowledge. Hot topics in resuscitation science include oxygen use in the delivery room for premature infants, placental transfusion during resuscitation, approach to meconium stained amniotic fluid and coordination of chest compressions and ventilation.
We invite you to contribute articles on any aspect of neonatal resuscitation to this Special Issue. Both reviews and original research will be considered for publication.
