Editor for a Special Issue in Children - New Insights in Neonatal Resuscitation

Dear Colleagues,

Approximately 10% of newborn infants need help to begin breathing at birth, and ~1% need intensive resuscitative measures to restore cardiorespiratory function. Successful neonatal resuscitation efforts depend on critical actions that must occur in rapid succession to maximize the chances of survival.

This Special Issue aims to provide a comprehensive overview for researchers, practitioners, and healthcare professionals to share and discuss the latest advancements, innovative strategies, and emerging trends in neonatal resuscitation.

This Special Issue seeks to facilitate the dissemination of knowledge that can improve the quality of care and outcomes for newborns requiring resuscitation. We aim to address the following areas: (i) emerging techniques and technologies, (ii) clinical guidelines and protocols, (iii)  quality improvement initiatives, (iv) multidisciplinary approaches, (v) ethical considerations, (vi) global perspectives, (vii) long-term outcomes and follow-up, (viii) education and training, (ix) innovations in preterm resuscitation, and (x) challenges and future directions.

We seek original articles, including randomized trials, observational or cohort studies, randomized animal studies, review articles, systematic reviews and meta-analyses, trial protocols, and surveys.

Prof. Dr. Georg SchmölzerGuest Editor
