LOL! I'm sure it is true. They need to sell new books, don't they!

They are changing some things based on lots of research done around the world. I believe cpap will be included, also no more straight to 100% O2, pulse oximetry being standard in the delivery room, de-emphasizing color, etc. It sounds really good to me actually.

I have heard the same thing. I just did my renewal course this week, and even though new guidelines are coming out next year, I won't have to deal with them until 2007. In some ways, I think that whenever they change the guidelines everyone should be renewed so they're "on the same page" but I know it won't happen. We'll keep doing every other year like always.

I especially am interested in the room air stuff, because I do think more many babies need the PPV more than they do the oxygen.
