The New England Journal of Medicine ‘s web site has the early publication of an editorial about the controversy over the SUPPORT study of oxygen saturation levels in premature infants. This excellent editorial is accompanied by a letter to the editor by some of the investigators involved in the study and a Perspective article by Arthur Caplan and yours truly (David Magnus). The biased and misleading reporting by most of the media on this has been striking. Hopefully other journals and journal editors will join AJOB and NEJM and attempt to correct the misinformation campaign.
