Five Inflation Breaths

Carlos Delgado

Recommended Posts

Good morning, 

I am pleased to write you. I am a Peruvian neonatologist and I would like to share ideas and comments about Five Inflation Breaths (5-IB) strategy.

I belong to a group of pediatrician that is interested in strategies for triggering First Breath at birth (1)... and 5-IB seem very interesting.

5-IB is mostly used in Europe, but not in America (2) (3). 

I wonder if it is possible to compare such differences through an ecological study analyzing European and American data....

I am writing to ask if someone believe that we can work together in this kind of ecological research?...

Could you share with us some statistical data from European sources?

In the beginning, my team and I could assume some data analysis and initial draft reports. We can arrange further details on Skype.

Please, tell me what you think,

Kind regards,

Carlos A. Delgado. MD, PhD

Lima, Peru

Dr. Kirpalani at CHOP is conducting a multicenter clinical trial on sustained inflation. Please look up SAIL trial and the study protocol is online at Trials (2015) 16:95.
