Dr. Raghuraman’s study entitled “Oxygen for category II intrauterine fetal resuscitation: a randomized, noninferiority trial” aims to test the hypothesis that room air is equally efficacious and safer than O2 for intrauterine resuscitation.

Every year in the US, approximately 600,000 to 700,000 neonates are exposed to O2 via intrapartum maternal hyperoxygenation. This trial could minimize potential risks to the neonates by limiting liberal oxygen administration in labor.
