Haemodynamic impact of chest compressions in the delivery room

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Among 65 neonates with encephalopathy undergoing cooling, 30 (46.1%) received chest compressions during delivery room resuscitation. Despite differences in encephalopathy severity, early (<24 hours) biventricular function on echocardiogram (fractional area change, myocardial performance indices, systolic to diastolic duration ratios, tricuspid annular plane systolic excursion) was comparable between groups with and without chest compressions. Epinephrine receipt was associated with abnormal tricuspid annular plane systolic excursion.
