Abstract

Strategies for oxygen therapy for preterm infants, such as the Vermont-Oxford s Breathsavers guidelines, seek to strike a balance between the potential risks of the extremes of hyperoxia and hypoxia in preterm infants. Using an algorithm based on those guidelines, we aimed to compare the proportion of time spent within the SpO2 target range during algorithm-based management of oxygen delivery compared with routine nursing care.
