The unexpected finding of excess deaths from pulmonary causes among infants in the high Sa[O.sub.2] group-albeit not statistically significant-accords with the findings of the only other trial in which preterm infants were randomly assigned to different target Sa[O.sub.2] ranges-namely the Supplemental Therapeutic Oxygen for Prethreshold Retinopathy of Prematurity (STOP-ROP) trial.18 The trial showed an increased rate of adverse pulmonary sequelae (although not an increased rate of death due to pulmonary causes) among preterm infants with pre-tROP when a higher Sa[O.sub.2] range (96-99%) was targeted.
