Randomised trial of cord clamping and initial stabilisation at very preterm birth

http://fn.bmj.com/content/fetalneonatal/103/1/F6.full.pdf

this study add :

Neonatal stabilisation and resuscitation can be provided with the cord intact.
► Giving neonatal care with the cord intact may improve outcome for the infants born very preterm.
► The effect of resuscitating preterm babies with an intact cord needs to be addressed in a large multicentre trial
