Abstract

Oxygen is the most commonly used medicine used during neonatal resuscitation in the delivery room. Oxygen therapy in delivery room should be used judiciously to avoid oxygen toxicity while delivering sufficient oxygen to prevent hypoxia. Measurement of appropriate oxygenation relies on pulse oximetry, but adequate ventilation and perfusion are equally important for oxygen delivery. In this article, we review oxygenation while transitioning from fetal to neonatal life, the importance of appropriate oxygen therapy, its measurement in the delivery room, and current recommendations for oxygen therapy and its limitations.
