Brief Summary:

Research question In newborn infants requiring CPR, does CC superimposed by sustained inflation compared to 3:1 compression to ventilation ratio improves return of spontaneous circulation?

Overall objective: CC superimposed by sustained inflation will improve short- and long-term outcomes in preterm (>28 weeks or older) and term newborns.

Hypothesis to be tested Primary hypothesis: By using CC superimposed by sustained inflation (CC+SI) during CPR the time needed to achieve return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) compared to the current 3:1 compression to ventilation (C:V) will be reduced in asphyxiated newborns.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Intervention (CC+SI)
Infants randomized into the "CC+SI group" will receive a SI with a PIP of 25-30 cmH2O while receiving chest compression. The SI will be delivered over a period of 45 seconds. This will be followed by PEEP of 5-8 cm water to perform an assessment of the newborn's heart rate. If heart rate is >60/min continue with standard care as per local hospital policy (standard hospital practice guideline). If heart rate remains <60/min continue with CC+SI for another 45sec at which time a further assessment should be performed. If heart rate remains <60/min continue with CC+SI.
Procedure: CC+SI
chest compression will be delivered during sustained inflation (CC+SI). The duration of each sustain inflation is 20sec. After 20sec a pause of 1sec id done before the next sustained inflation is delivered for another 20sec. Chest compressions are given continuously. This approach is continued until return of spontaneous circulation.

Active Comparator: Control (3:1 C:V)
Infants randomized into the "3:1 C:V group" will receive CC at a rate of 90/min and 30 ventilations/min in a 3:1 C:V ratio as recommended by the current resuscitation guidelines.
Procedure: 3:1 C:V
During 3:1 C:V. 3 chest compressions are given, then stopped and then 1 inflation is given. This approach is continued until return of spontaneous circulation.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Return of spontaneous Circulation [ Time Frame: up to 60 Minutes of chest compression ]
    Duration of chest compression heart rate is >60/min for 60sec.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Mortality [ Time Frame: Until infant is discharge from hospital (maximum of 30 weeks after birth) ]
    Number of infants who die until discharge - comparison between group

  2. Number of Epinephrine dosses during resuscitation [ Time Frame: During resuscitation (up to 60 minutes) ]
    How many doses of epinephrine are given - comparison between group

  3. Rate of brain injury [ Time Frame: Until infant is discharge from hospital (maximum of 30 weeks after birth) ]
    Brain injury either by ultrasound or magnet resonance imaging - comparison between group

  4. Necrotizing enterocolitis [ Time Frame: Until infant is discharge from hospital (maximum of 30 weeks after birth) ]
    Number of infants who develop Necrotizing enterocolitis - comparison between group

Ages Eligible for Study:   0 Minutes to 20 Minutes   (Child)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Infants (term or preterm infants >28 weeks' gestation) requiring CC in the delivery room will be eligible for the trial.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Infants will be excluded if they have a congenital abnormality or condition that might have an adverse effect on breathing or ventilation (e.g. congenital diaphragmatic hernia), or congenital heart disease requiring intervention in the neonatal period. Infants would be also excluded if their parents refused to give consent to this study.
