Use of moisted and heated air in resuscitation room

Recommended Posts

Hello all!

I just wanted to pop the question if you use moisted and heated air to your T-piece device/ BVM/ other device when ventilating/supporting respiration in the delivery room?  We do in GA < 30 weeks with a Fischer Paykel humidifier.

If so, what kind of  moister/heater? Do you have various modes "normal", "invasive"? 

Do you use it in just ELBW infants or all?

...or do you use normal, dry air/O2 and wait with the moist and heat until in the NICU?

Thanks for your input!

We are in the process of setting it up and plan to use for infants <32 weeks mainly because that is the gestation we send a nursing team from NICU to attend and they will set it up
