Neonatal Resuscitation Research Group

Patient-oriented research to improve provider performance

and clinical outcomes during neonatal resuscitation

 
 

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 adapted a novel tool to measure the impact of Flow Disruptions on practice measures and clinical outcomes during delivery room resuscitation.

In this meta-analysis, sustained inflation was associated with similar risks of in-hospital mortality compared with standard therapy. Sustained inflation was associated with increased risk of mortality in the first 2 days compared with standard therapy, and there were no differences in the risk of any other secondary outcomes.

This inaugural report of over 1,000 delivery room cardiopulmonary resuscitation events in the multi-site American Heart Association Get with the Guidelines-Resuscitation Registry contributes to defining gestational-age specific survival outcomes.

Dr. Foglia is an Assistant 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.
