131 7 AOC for very preterm infants and neurodevelopmental outcome at two years Besides fewer parent-reported readmissions, no change in outcome occurred after implementation of automated oxygen control. It is reassuring that outcomes did not deteriorate, and that outcome of our follow-up is similar to earlier reported data. Our results show no signs children are affected negatively by using an automated oxygen controller, whereas there are benefits for staff workload. Conclusion In this cohort study, implementation of automated oxygen control in our NICU as standard of care for preterm infants led to no significant difference in neurodevelopmental outcome at two years of age.
