Dr. Foglia's research aims to identify the best methods to monitor and perform neonatal resuscitation, with the ultimate goal of optimizing outcomes for high risk infants who require resuscitation in the delivery room and neonatal intensive care unit setting.
Neonatal resuscitation is a high acuity, low occurrence event. There is limited high-quality evidence to inform neonatal resuscitation treatment recommendations. Dr. Foglia's research aims to identify the best methods to monitor and perform neonatal resuscitation, with the goal of optimizing outcomes for high-risk infants who require resuscitation in the delivery room and neonatal intensive care unit setting.
Her research aims to characterize the epidemiology of neonatal resuscitation, to improve monitoring and clinical performance during resuscitation, and to identify interventions to prevent mortality and long-term disability in high-risk infants.
Dr. Foglia is a member of the American Heart Association Get With the Guidelines - Resuscitation Pediatric Research Taskforce, and the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation, which formulates the guidelines for neonatal resuscitation used globally.
She also serves on the steering committee for the international National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD)-funded Sustained Aeration of Infant Lungs (SAIL) randomized trial, and as principal investigator of the respiratory function monitor ancillary study of the SAIL trial. SAIL was an international NICHD-funded randomized trial of delivery room management of extremely preterm infants that compared the impact of sustained inflation versus standard intermittent positive pressure ventilation on the combined endpoint of death or bronchopulmonary dysplasia.
In addition, Dr. Foglia is a member of the National Emergency Airway Registry for Neonates (NEAR4NEOS) research team. Through single-site and multisite studies using the NEAR4NEOS registry, the team has characterized the type and incidence of adverse events during neonatal intubation and identified modifiable practices that are associated with a lower risk of adverse tracheal intubation-associated events.
