Humidification and heating of inspired gas during delivery room stabilization improves admission temperature in preterm infants

NORMOTHERMIA Maintaining normothermia in preterm infants after birth remains a challenge. Meyer and colleagues have demonstrated that the use of heated humidified gas during preterm infants stabilization improves temperature on admission to NICU. However, firm recommendations for clinical practice cannot be given at this time based on the limited evidence currently available.
