In preparation for the birth of a preterm newborn, increase the temperature of the delivery room to approximately 26-28 oC .
For newborns less than 32 weeks gestation, it is recommended that:
- Cover the newborn in food-grade plastic wrap or bag and use a hat and thermal mattress
- Consider using CPAP immediately after birth as an alternative to routine intubation and prophylactic surfactant administration.
