About this trial.
The purpose of this study is to determine which of two lung-opening strategies — standard CPAP in the delivery room or an early lung recruitment using sustained inflation (a long initial breath) in the delivery room — results in a lower rate death or bronchopulmonary dysplasia at 36 weeks gestational age. This study will include 600 infants internationally — and of that number approximately 60 will be enrolled at Sharp Mary Birch.
