Errors occurred in the article by Cummings et al, titled “Oxygen Targeting in Extremely Low Birth Weight Infants” published in the August 2016 issue of Pediatrics (2016;138(2):e20161576; doi:10.1542/peds.2016-1576).
On page e6, under the section heading Randomized Clinical Trials of Oxygen Targeting, in paragraph 8, on lines 30-32, this reads: “a pooled analysis from all 3 BOOST-II sites, as originally planned, showed no significant difference in this outcome.” This should have read: “a pooled analysis from all 3 BOOST-II sites showed no significant difference in this outcome.”
On page e9, under References, reference # 47 reads: “Cummings JJ, Lakshminrusimha S, Polin RA. The BOOST trials and the pitfalls of post hoc analyses. N Engl J Med 2016, in press.” This has been updated and should now read: “Cummings JJ, Lakshminrusimha S, Polin RA. Oxygen saturation targets in preterm infants [Letter to the Editor]. Reply: Tarnow-Mordi WO, Stenson B, Kirby A. N Engl J Med 2016;375(2):186-188.”
