II. Preparations: Non-Rebreathing Mask with reservoir

  1. Deliver only 60-70% Oxygen at 15 L/min
    1. Previously described as delivering 95% FIO2 (leakage around mask prevents this)
    2. Standard anesthesia masks have tighter seal and achieve closer to 95% FIO2
    3. Increasing flow above 15 L/min if regulator allows can achieve closer to 90% FIO2
  2. Two valves added to rebreathing mask prevents:
    1. Entrainment of room air during inspiration
    2. Retention of exhaled gases during expiration

III. Preparations: Oxygen Hood

  1. Clear plastic shell encompasses the baby's head
