Background:We compared current guidelines for neonatal resuscitation to alternative measures and aimed to find if this modulated brain inflammation.Methods:Progressive asphyxia was induced in 94 newborn pigs until asystole. With the reference being resuscitation guidelines, 30s of initial positive pressure ventilation before compressions and ventilations (C:V) 3:1 in 21% oxygen, pigs were randomized to 1) ventilation for 30s, 60s or 90s before chest compressions or 2) C:V ratios 3:1, 9:3 or 15:2 or 3) 21% or 100% oxygen. Concentrations in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and gene expression in hippocampus and frontal cortex of inflammatory markers were measured for the different interventions.Results:In CSF, S100 was higher with 90s than 30s and 60s of initial positive pressure ventilation, whereas concentrations of IL6 and TNFα were higher with 30s than 60s. Matrix metalloproteinase 2 (MMP2) and intracellular adhesion molecule 1 (ICAM-1) were higher with 30s than 60s. All other comparisons between ratios and oxygen concentrations used were similar.Conclusion:With respect to signs of brain inflammation newly born pigs at asystole should be ventilated longer than 30s before chest compressions start. Ratios 9:3 and 15:2 compared to 3:1, or air instead of pure oxygen, did not modulate inflammatory markers.Pediatric Research (2012); doi:10.1038/pr.2012.167.
