According To The Textbook Of Neonatal Resuscitation, 8th Edition Algorithm, At What Point During Resuscitation Is A Cardiac Monitor Recommended To Assess The Baby’s Heart Rate?

According to the Textbook of Neonatal Resuscitation, 8th edition algorithm, at what point during resuscitation is a cardiac monitor recommended to assess the baby’s heart rate?


According to the updated guidelines from the American Heart Association, if resuscitation is required for a newborn, the heart rate should be monitored by electrocardiography as early as possible.

Electrocardiography is recommended because it detects the heart rate faster and more accurately than a pulse oximeter.

Additionally, positive-pressure ventilation should be initiated in newborns who are gasping, apneic, or have a heart rate below 100 beats per minute by 60 seconds of life​.
