New Methods for Noninvasive Oxygen Administration

Academic Article


  • Oxygen therapy is an essential part of neonatal care. Targeting oxygen saturations and preventing hypoxemia and hyperoxemia is difficult, particularly in preterm infants. The mode of oxygen delivery directly affects the stability of oxygen saturations, hypoxemia, and hyperoxemia. This stability has important clinical implications. New methods of noninvasive oxygen administration, including closed-loop automated control and servo-controlled oxygen environments, have been developed to improve oxygen saturation targeting and decrease episodes of hyperoxemia and hypoxemia.
