The Spanish Association of Pediatrics has as one of its main objectives the dissemination of rigorous and updated scientific information on the different areas of pediatrics. Annals of Pediatrics is the Body of Scientific Expression of the Association and is the vehicle through which members communicate. The magazine, referring to the Spanish-speaking pediatric, indexed in major international databases: The Impact Factor measures the average number of citations received in a particular year by papers published in the journal during the two receding years.

CiteScore measures average citations received per document published. SRJ is a prestige metric based on the idea that not all citations are the same. SJR uses a similar algorithm as the Google page rank; it provides a quantitative and qualitative measure of the journal’s impact. SNIP measures contextual citation impact by wighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field. An analysis is presented of delivery room DR neonatal resuscitation practices in Spanish hospitals.

A questionnaire was sent by e-mail to all hospitals attending deliveries in Spain.

In almost three-quarters Neonatal resuscitation courses were held in The availability of gas blenders, pulse oximeters, manual ventilators, and plastic wraps was higher in level III hospitals. Plastic wraps for pre-term hypothermia prevention were used in Term newborn resuscitation was started on room air in A manual ventilator T-piece was the device used in most cases when ventilation was required Early CPAP in preterm infants was applied in In the last 5 years some practices have improved, such as neonatal resuscitation training, pulse oximeter use, or early CPAP support.

There is an improvement in some practices of neonatal resuscitation. Significant differences have been found regarding the equipment or practices in the DR, when comparing hospitals of different levels of care. Stabilisation and resuscitation at birth continue to be universal medical practices and it is estimated that one quarter of neonatal deaths are caused by birth asphyxia.

While there is consensus between institutions, neonatal resuscitation practices vary across countries and even between hospitals within a single country. Inthe GRN-SENeo published a survey on neonatal resuscitation in delivery rooms that summarised the practices of the major Spanish hospitals in This article presents and discusses the main results obtained from this assessment and compares them with the practices of other countries. In the last trimester ofwe sent a questionnaire by electronic mail to the major hospitals that attend deliveries in Spain.

The questionnaire consisted of 48 items that explored aspects related to resuscitation in the delivery room: We performed a descriptive statistical analysis, expressing qualitative variables as absolute and relative frequencies. We considered P -values of 0. We show overall results for different aspects of resuscitation, comparing participating hospitals by level of care Table Number of newborns with birth weights less than g per year by neonatal unit level of care.

The lowest gestational age at which resuscitation nepnatal attempted was 23 weeks in 47 hospitals Limit of viability for resuscitation by neonatal unit level of care. Aseociation equipped for neonatal resuscitation in the delivery room are arranged in the same room as the mother or in an adjacent room in When it came to the presence of the father or the mother’s partner in the delivery room, The birth plan submitted by the parents was accepted and adhered to in The family participated in the decision to withhold or withdraw resuscitation along with the medical team in The withdrawal of resuscitation when the patient is unresponsive Apgar score remaining at 0 is indicated at 10, 15 and 20 min in Compared to level I and II hospitals, withdrawal of resuscitation at 10 min was more frequent in level III hospitals heatt In level III hospitals, resuscitation teams RTs were mostly composed of neonatologists and paediatric residents Five hospitals all level III performed video recordings in the delivery room, and Table 2 shows the data for resuscitation equipment.


Equipment in the resuscitation area. Tubs for water births were available in The risk of hypoxic-ischaemic encephalopathy HIE is the clinical situation cited most frequently as a specific reason to measure the heaet of NBs in the delivery room, followed by preterm birth. Polyethylene bags are used in Pulse oximetry is used in In term NBs, resuscitation is initiated with room air in During resuscitation, FIO 2 is adjusted based on Sp0 2 values in Resuscitation areas are equipped with carbon dioxide CO 2 detectors in 5.

Table 3 summarises the ventilatory support practices in preterm NBs. Forty-seven percent of hospitals administer surfactant in the delivery room.

Respiratory care of preterm newborns in the delivery room. Intratracheal adrenaline is the medication used most frequently in the delivery room Intratracheal adrenaline is most commonly administered in doses ranging from 0. Naloxone is still used in the delivery room in We did not find significant differences in the use of medication based on hospital level of care.

Table 4 summarises the data pertaining to the transport of NBs from the delivery room to the neonatal intensive care unit NICU. Transport from delivery room to neonatal unit.

CPAP, continuous positive airway pressure; Ns, not significant. This is the largest survey on neonatal resuscitation ever carried out in Spain, and the second published by the GRN-SENeo beonatal its inception. We have jeonatal that very low birth weight NBs receive care in the participating centres each year, a figure far exceeding the in the SEN morbidity and mortality report for year The definition of the limits of viability assocciation preterm NBs varies from country to country, and in Spain, the GRN-SENeo recommends initiating resuscitation in newborns at the threshold of 23 or 24 weeks of gestation WG on a case-to-case basis, taking into consideration the wishes of the parents reanimcion the morbidity and mortality rates of the particular hospital.

This finding stands in contrast with data from other countries such as Japan or Germany, which have set thresholds at 22—23 WG. There is no consensus on when to discontinue resuscitation efforts when there reanimaciob no detectable heart rate.

Half of the participating hospitals discontinue at 10 min from birth, with predominance of level III hospitals. Some hart affirm that delaying this decision would allow a more accurate prognosis and enough time to explore the wishes of the parents.

The Neonatal Resuscitation Program NRP of the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that at least two members zmerican the resuscitation team be physically present around the clock to provide care for at-risk NBs in the delivery room.

Multiple studies demonstrate the benefits of neonatal resuscitation programmes in the training of professionals that provide neonatal care at birth, in developed as well as developing and emerging countries.


These courses neonatxl based on simulation techniques and employ group dynamics, distraction, booster practice and integrated feedback, an approach proven to be highly effective.

The equipment available in the delivery room is a good indicator of neonatal resuscitation practices. A Japanese survey 26 found variability in the equipment available in different developed countries. The recommendations stated that the use of CO 2 detectors combined with clinical assessment is the most reliable method to confirm tracheal tube placement in neonates with cardiac output.

Water births are an alternative to conventional delivery that is becoming increasingly popular neonaatal many countries. The literature has reported that at least maternity units in the United States 29 and in the United Kingdom 30 have tubs.

Therapeutic hypothermia is an accepted clinical practice in term and near-term NBs with moderate or severe HIE within 6 h of birth. Initiation of resuscitation with room air in term NBs is considered appropriate by the guidelines 2—4 based on studies that demonstrated that the use of oxygen at high concentrations leads to less favourable outcomes and offers no benefits compared to the use of air.

Table 5 presents the clinical practices in the resuscitation of preterm NBs in different countries. At present, sustained inflation is not a widespread practice. Summary of surveys regarding equipment and clinical practices in the resuscitation of preterm newborns in the delivery room. When it comes to the transport of the NB from the delivery room to the NICU, the most commonly used ventilation systems were automatic resuscitators, and we have observed an increase in the use of CPAP and oxygen blenders in Spanish hospitals.

Table 6 compares the data on resuscitation equipment and practices of the latest survey on neonatal resuscitation in Spain 7 and the current study. Between and there has been an increase in the availability of gas blenders and manual resuscitators T-pieces and in the use of pulse oximetry for the adjustment of FiO 2and a decrease in the administration of free-flow oxygen.

We also found evidence of increased use of pressure-controlled devices in level III units and early CPAP to facilitate alveolar recruitment.

Comparison of the data from the a and current study SENeo surveys. To conclude, we want to highlight the improvement in the neonatal resuscitation equipment and practices in Spanish delivery rooms. Some of the areas for improvement are minimising the differences between different-level hospitals, maintaining higher ambient temperatures, and increasing the use of plastic wrap, gas blenders, pulse oximetry and CO 2 detectors.

This assofiation may be useful for planning the equipment of delivery rooms and improving health care practices. The authors have no conflicts of interest to declare.
