Holte et al monitored neonates being resuscitated after delivery. They identified predictors for survival after 24 hours. The authors are from multiple institutions in Norway and Tanzania.
Patient selection: neonate requiring resuscitation
Outcome: survival at 24 hours
(1) percent expired CO2
(2) heart rate in beats per minute
Percent Expired CO2 (Figure 2)
Heart Rate (Figure 2)
• The area under the ROC curve for various measures of maximum percent expired CO2 ranged from 0.62 to 0.72.
• The area under the ROC curve for various measures of maximum heart rate ranged from 0.64 to 0.67.
