The Golden Hour Part I: Delivery Room Management

The successful transition from fetal to neonatal life involves many complex physiological changes. Interventions during this time period have been shown to have a great influence on a baby's future morbidities. Optimizing delivery room management of newborns provides many opportunities to impact outcomes positively with a lower occurrence of preventable illnesses.

The FPQC supported a "Golden Hour Part I: Delivery Room Management" quality improvement initiative for infants with a gestational age less than 30 6/7 weeks or birth weight less than 1500 grams. Through the guidance of the Lead Investigator - Maya Balakrishnan, MD, Assistant Professor, Department of Pediatrics, University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine - and the active involvement of FPQC stakeholders, this Infant Health Advisory Subcommittee project team focused on teamwork, thermoregulation, oxygen saturation, and delayed cord clamping.
