ESTEVEZ1, DANIEL and PANIZZA, RUBEN. Reanimación neonatal: descripción de tres diferentes equipos disponibles en la atención inmediata de los neonatos. Arch. Pediatr. Urug. [online]. 2002, vol.73, n.4, pp. 212-219. ISSN 0004-0584.
The principal outcome in this paper was to compare the use of three devices applied in reanimation of neonates in Maternity of Centro Hospitalario Pereira Rossell, and as secondary outcome, the indications in reanimation, mortality, complications, and study some indicators. We also did a survey among the physicians that attended the newborns about the problems they had with the devices, and their preferences in using them. We found no differences in all the complications and in the evolution of the babies, using the three different equipments, but yes in the preference of users. About reanimation methods, we think that it could be used intubation less frequently than it is, as inicial method of reanimation, and the scarce need of medication in the recovery to newborns.
