One of the most complex areas in perinatal/neonatal medicine is the use of oxygen in neonatal therapies. To address the knowledge gaps that preclude optimal, evidence-based care in this critical field of perinatal medicine, the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development organized a workshop, Oxygen in Neonatal Therapies: Controversies and Opportunities for Research, in August 2005. The information presented at the workshop included basic and translational oxygen research; a review of completed, ongoing, and planned clinical trials; oxygen administration for neonatal resuscitation; and a review of the collaborative home infant monitoring evaluation study. This article provides a summary of the discussions, focusing on major knowledge gaps, with prioritized suggestions for studies in this area.
