Elizabeth Foglia


Dr. Foglia is an Associate Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Neonatology at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.  She leads an NIH-funded clinical research group focused on neonatal resuscitation, respiratory management, and intubation safety.  She was the PI for the INFLATE study and SAIL RFM ancillary study, which both used respiratory function monitoring to characterize ventilation delivered to preterm infants during delivery room resuscitation.

Dr. Foglia directs two multicenter networks focused on resuscitation practice: the National Emergency Airway Registry for Neonates (NEAR4NEOS) and the American Academy of Pediatrics Delivery Room Intervention and Evaluation (DRIVE) Network.  She serves on the Neonatal Resuscitation Program Steering Committee and the Neonatal Life Support Taskforce for the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation, which generates treatment guidelines for neonatal resuscitation used globally.
