In brief: No
Best way to manage it is to prevent it by suctioning of the airway of the infant by a trained person, if depressed after the delivery.
Many mas happen prior to the delivery. If the infant develops mas, standard treatment includes, oxygen, i.V fluids, antibiotics, blood gases, ventilator management, inhaled Nitric Oxide etc.

In brief: No
Meconium aspiration is best treated by offering respiratory support as needed, preventing secondary damage or infection to the lung, and managing associated conditions, such as perinatal depression.
Meconium aspiration syndrome, if uncomplicated, resolves within several days, with no long-term consequences.
