AIRWAY SUPPORT Effective airway support is essential to aiding the neonatal transition. This prospective randomized controlled trial assessed the effectiveness of supreme laryngeal mask airway versus standard facemask ventilation for delivery of PPV in neonates >34 weeks gestational age and >1500 g requiring delivery room ventilation. The trial revealed that SLMA is more effective than facemask ventilation at preventing endotracheal intubation at delivery.
