The success and response to neonatal ventilation during neonatal resuscitation at birth is assessed by monitoring the heart rate. Thus, heart rate is the reliable indicator of neonatal ventilation during neonatal resuscitation. As per the NRP present guidelines, the heart rate assessment methods include. 1. Palpating umbilical cord pulsations, 2. Calculating the heart rate by auscultation 3. By pulse oximetry and 4. By ECG monitoring. One cannot count the heart rate accurately with precision by palpation of Umbilical cord pulsations and by auscultation of the neonatal heart. They are more dependent on experience of the resuscitator and prone for bias while counting especially when the heart rate is around hundred.
