Innovation Description

Each year approximately 10 million babies do not breathe immediately at birth, of which about 6 million require basic neonatal resuscitation (1). It is estimated that there are 904,000 intrapartum-related neonatal deaths each year (2). The vast majority of these deaths occur in low-income settings, where health system capacity to provide neonatal resuscitation is inadequate (3). Delays to establish ventilation in a non-breathing newborn contribute to this mortality and morbidity.
