    Delivery of positive end-expiratory pressure to preterm lambs using common resuscitation devices

    I congratulate Dr Thio and colleagues on their study of PEEP delivery in common neonatal resuscitation devices. This study is timely as clinicians look for more refined strategies to support the preterm lung at birth. Such strategies will require a reliance on equipment in the delivery room.
    To allow for interpretation of the findings into the clinical context could the authors comment on the number, and characteristics, of lambs studied, and was this accounted for analysis in Table 1 (for example cluster analysis)? What was the pressure of medical gas supply?
