life, because of the large total number of births, a sizable number will
require some degree of resuscitation.
Those newly born infants who do not require resuscitation can gener-
ally be identified by a rapid assessment of the following 3
● Term gestation?
● Crying or breathing?
● Good muscle tone?
If the answer to all 3 of these questions is “yes,” the baby does not need
resuscitation and should not be separated from the mother. The baby
should be dried, placed skin-to-skin with the mother, and covered with
dry linen to maintain temperature. Observation of breathing, activity,
and color should be ongoing.
If the answer to any of these assessment questions is “no,” the infant
should receive one or more of the following 4 categories of action in
