  1. As I believe you've noticed, we've just published a RCT on Intact Cord Resuscitation: https://doi.org/10.1186/s40748-019-0110-z Unfortunately it was afflicted by a high protocol violation rate, but at least encourages further research.
  2. Here are some answers on @AllThingsNeonatal blog above; Dear Michael, thanks for posting your thoughts on our paper: https://rdcu.be/bP2Ew Regarding < 1 minute compared to > 3 minutes we had the same criteria in our RCT on 540 healthy newborns with 12 months follow-up, showing reduced anemia (http://dx.doi.org/10.1001/jamapediatrics.2016.3971) and improved development assessed by ASQ (http://dx.doi.org/10.1159/000491994). Most major studies on DCC in term infants define DCC as 2-3 min or more. Regarding outcomes in the above mentioned study (https://doi.org/10.1186/s40748-019-0103-y) I can only regret that we didn´t include the important data on temperature and NICU admittance; for you and your readers, here they are. Temperature Celcius: DCC 36.3 (0.5) vs ECC 36.3 (0.5), p=0.05, Mean difference -0.05 (-0.11 – 0.00) Fahrenheit: DCC 97.3 (0.9) vs ECC 97.4 (0.8), DCC 36.3 (0.5), ECC 36.3 (0.5), p=0.05, Mean difference -0.05 (-0.11 – 0.00) Measured at (minutes after birth): DCC 17.1 (8.9) vs ECC 16.7 (1.6), p=0.38, Mean difference 0.4 (-0.3 – 1.1) NICU admittance, N (%): DCC 5 (0.8%) vc ECC 5 (0.7%), p>0.99. As I hope you´ve noticed, we published a study last week on intact cord resuscitation where we included data on temperature and admittance to the NICU: https://doi.org/10.1186/s40748-019-0110-z Kind regards, Ola Andersson
