Neonatal resuscitation is a high acuity, low occurrence event. Limited high-quality evidence informs neonatal resuscitation treatment recommendations. Our group seeks to identify the best methods to monitor and perform neonatal resuscitation, with the ultimate goal of optimizing clinical outcomes for high-risk infants.

We analyzed respiratory function monitor (RFM) and vital sign measurements for infants who received sustained inflation and intermittent positive pressure ventilation (IPPV) in the Sustained Aeration of Infant Lungs (SAIL) trial.

Dr. Foglia is an Associate Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine and an academic neonatologist at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.

Dr. Foglia’s research aims to characterize the epidemiology of neonatal resuscitation, to improve monitoring and clinical performance during resuscitation, and to identify interventions to prevent mortality and long-term disability in high-risk infants.
