Positive Results on Training in Neonatal Ventilation with PEEP

Dr. Monica Thallinger’s work using Upright with Newborn PEEP was recently published in the British Medical Journal. Positive end expiratory pressure (PEEP) is considered to be beneficial when ventilating preterm newborns. The aim of Thallinger’s study was to determine whether inexperienced providers were able to generate PEEP during simulated neonatal ventilation. Her study showed that inexperienced participants were successfully able to generate PEEP with a novel silicone PEEP valve attached to an upright self-inflating bag, without an external gas source.
