Abstract

To compare the ability of qualitative versus quantitative methods of end-tidal carbon dioxide (EtCO2) detection to maintain normocarbia during face mask ventilation (FMV) of preterm infants (<32 weeks) in the delivery room. Preterm infants <32 weeks were randomly assigned to the use of a disposable PediCap EtCO2 detector (Covidien, Dublin, Ireland) (qualitative) or a Microstream side stream capnography device (Covidien) (quantitative) for FMV in the delivery room, via a NeoPuff T-piece resuscitator (Fisher and Paykel, Auckland, New Zealand). The primary outcome was the presence of normocarbia, based on partial pressure of CO2 (PaCO2) readings obtained in the neonatal intensive care unit within an hour of birth. Normocarbia was defined as a PaCO2 measure between 37.5 and 60 mm Hg (5-8 kPa). Of the 59 infants included, 59% (35/59) were within the PaCO2 target range within an hour of birth. There was no difference in the primary outcome; 64% (21/33) of infants in the quantitative group were within the PaCO2 range compared with 54% (14/26) in the qualitative group (P = .594); and 93% of participants <28 weeks' gestation were within the PaCO2 normocarbic range (90% [9/10] in quantitative group and 100% [5/5] in the qualitative group [P = 1]). There was no difference in the intubation rate, days of ventilation, or bronchopulmonary dysplasia rates between the 2 groups. Quantitative or qualitative EtCO2 detection methods are both feasible for FMV in the delivery room. Although there was no difference in the incidence of normocarbia, the use of either form of EtCO2 monitoring should be considered during newborn stabilization, especially in infants less than 28 weeks' gestation. ISRCTN: ISRCTN10934870.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 10 December 2016.
All research outputs
#9,750,465
of 12,199,528 outputs
Outputs from Journal of Pediatrics
#6,622
of 7,851 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#228,924
of 331,881 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Journal of Pediatrics
#191
of 230 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,199,528 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 11th percentile – i.e., 11% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 7,851 research outputs from this source. They typically receive more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 9.1. This one is in the 8th percentile – i.e., 8% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 331,881 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 18th percentile – i.e., 18% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 230 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 12th percentile – i.e., 12% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
