Mechanical ventilation is one of the most common therapies in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), it is an area where technical complexity overlap individual preferences due to lack of extensive scientific evidence. Our aim is to provide clinical practice guidelines for conventional mechanical ventilation of newborn infants, utilizing the best available scientific evidence and to address the controversies. These guidelines are meant to help the clinician in managing ventilated newborn infants; it should not replace clinical judgment.
