Resuscitation Interventions & Outcomes
Neonatal intubation is a life-saving but high-risk procedure. Both the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania are contributing sites in the international NEAR4NEOS registry. Through our work with NEAR4NEOS, we have characterized the type and incidence of adverse events during neonatal intubation and identified practices associated with a lower risk of adverse events.
Resuscitation Interventions and Outcomes
Neonatal resuscitation is a high-acuity, low occurrence event. Our work seeks to characterize the epidemiology of neonatal resuscitation and to identify interventions to improve patient outcomes following resuscitation in both the delivery room and NICU settings.
Accurate and reliable physiologic monitors are needed to assess the need for and response to resuscitative interventions. We are interested in the performance of physiologic monitors and in the way that providers interact with these monitors. We have used video recording and eye tracking technology to assess provider performance during simulation and resuscitation.
