ACOG recommends delayed cord clamping in infants that do not need resuscitation. Join Dr. Katheria as he discusses important perinatal research surrounding umbilical cord milking as an alternative to delayed cord clamping as a means to provide additional blood to at risk premature babies without delaying neonatal resuscitative efforts. In this podcast, Dr. Katheria reviews results from a multi-national, randomized controlled non-inferiority trial comparing umbilical cord milking to delayed cord clamping in premature infants born between 23-31 weeks gestation.
