PMID:  19057606     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Review of all medical literature dealing with delivery room management of meconium-stained infants. Additionally, the author contacted multiple individuals involved historically or clinically with the published studies or the persons who developed treatment guidelines. Although many therapies have been suggested as being effective, none have been definitively proven efficacious by the gold standard: a large, randomized, controlled trial (RCT). Further adequate investigations (RCTs) need to be performed to assess whether proposed management schemes are of benefit in the care of meconium-stained newborn infants.
