Objective:  To determine the feasibility of 50-60% oxygen resuscitation by a simple method using a self-inflation bag without oxygen reservoir for positive pressure ventilation (PPV) or using a constant distance and flow rate for blow-by-oxygen. Methods:  Newly born infants ≤ 35 wk gestational age were eligible. Infants requiring PPV were initiated with bag-mask PPV without oxygen reservoir. Nearly 100% oxygen was given by attaching oxygen reservoir if HR <100/min after PPV for 90 sec or SpO(2 ) < 75% at 3 min. For those requiring blow-by-oxygen, oxygen flow 5 L/min via face-mask was given 2 inches far from the nose. Almost 100% oxygen was given by close-fitting face-mask to nose if SpO(2 ) < 80% at 5 min. Results:  Ninety-one infants were eligible; 67 of them required resuscitation. Thirty-five infants required PPV; 27 (77.1%) responded to bag-mask PPV without oxygen reservoir. For 32 infants requiring blow-by-oxygen, 28 (87.5%) could reach the targeted SpO(2) . No significant differences in clinical outcomes were observed between responders and non-responders. Conclusions:  The technique of less than 100% oxygen supplementation used in this study was effective for preterm newborn resuscitation with a high success rate. This technique may be useful for a limited-resource setting. © 2012 The Authors. Pediatrics International © 2012 Japan Pediatric Society.
