Copyright restrictions may apply Background –Determining the optimal oxygen saturation (SpO 2 ) target for extremely preterm infants has been the focus of 5 randomized clinical trials (Surfactant, Positive Pressure, and Oxygenation Randomized Trial [SUPPORT], Benefits of Oxygen Saturation Targeting II [BOOST II] in the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand, and Canadian Oxygen Trial [COT]). Study Objective –To assess whether targeting a lower SpO 2 range (85%-89% restricted oxygen) has an effect on mortality and severe disability, mortality alone, bronchopulmonary dysplasia, neurodevelopmental outcome, hearing loss, necrotizing enterocolitis, or severe retinopathy of prematurity compared with targeting a higher SpO 2 range (91%-95% liberal oxygen) after accounting for the risk of bias of each included study as well as the quality of evidence for each outcome. Study Design –Meta-analysis and systematic review. Introduction

Copyright restrictions may apply Fixed-effect model assumes a common treatment effect and equal weight is given to each subject (large study, proportionately larger weight in meta- analysis). Random-effects model incorporates between-study variance. If a group of studies is homogeneous, fixed-effect and random-effects study-specific weights are equal. With increasing heterogeneity, the 2 weights will become increasingly different. Random-effects model was chosen to analyze results in this study because –The goal was to estimate the mean effect in all studies and not let the overall estimate be overly influenced by 1 study. –These studies were performed by different researchers using similar outlines but operating independently. –These studies are not functionally equivalent due to variability in patients, protocols (pulse oximeter algorithms). –Random-effects model is more suitable to generalize results to a range of clinical scenarios.

Copyright restrictions may apply Results Death before hospital discharge was statistically significantly higher in the restricted oxygen group (risk ratio = 1.18; 95% CI, 1.03-1.36). This was not a prespecified outcome in any of the studies. Necrotizing enterocolitis occured more frequently in the restricted oxygen group (risk ratio = 1.24; 95% CI, 1.05-1.47). There was no significant difference in the outcomes of death or disability before age 2 years, death before 24 months, bronchopulmonary dysplasia, hearing loss, and retinopathy of prematurity. The quality of evidence was low for the outcomes of death before hospital discharge and retinopathy of prematurity. It was moderate for all other outcomes.

Copyright restrictions may apply Comment This systematic review highlights the importance of assessing the risk of bias in studies and of the level of confidence in the estimate of effect of each outcome. Although SUPPORT, BOOST II, and COT were well-designed and mostly well-executed studies, the significant overlap in oxygenation between the intervention and comparator arms makes it difficult to conclude that the results obtained were predominantly due to difference in oxygenation. Death before hospital discharge was not a prespecified outcome in any of these trials. The confidence in this outcome is lower for this reason. Significant heterogeneity existed between studies for the outcome of retinopathy of prematurity, resulting in lowering of the level of confidence for the estimate of effect for this outcome.
Copyright restrictions may apply This review illustrates the qualitative factors that need to be considered before making treatment recommendations based on systematic reviews of available literature. The assessment of quality of evidence can be subjective; however, using GRADE, the rationale for the quality assessment is clearly stated and the subjective nature of this process acknowledged. This review reveals that there continues to be significant uncertainty about the optimal target range for SpO 2 in extremely preterm infants. This is in contrast to previous reviews, which did not consider the quality of evidence in their final evaluation. Information from the planned prospective individual-patient meta-analysis and practical considerations (difficulty in maintaining SpO 2 in a narrow range) should be included when making practice recommendations.
