Although most newborn infants are vigorous at birth, some need to be resuscitated. Therefore, at least one person skilled in neonatal resuscitation should be present at every delivery and appropriate equipments for resuscitation should be available. Most infants who reqiure resuscitation only need respiratory support. Chest compressions and administration of medications are infrequently needed. This article provides guidelines on neonatal resuscitation, which are mainly based on recently published International Liasion Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) guidelines.
