Abstract

The 2020 recommendations from the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation is an improved version of the 2015 version. The algorithm and 15 procedures are unchanged from 2015, but there are six procedures with new or changed recommendations. One new recommendation is for there to be briefing/debriefing following neonatal resuscitation. Procedures with changed suggestions/recommendations are: suctioning of non-vigorous infants delivered through meconium-stained amniotic fluid, sustained inflation of preterm infants, optimizing epinephrine (adrenaline), vascular access, and discontinuing resuscitative efforts. CONCLUSION: In this review we summarize the present recommendations and offer additional comments and views regarding heart rate detection, cord clamping, oxygenation, and thermal control.
