The main differentiation for neonatal CPR is primarily airway, breathing and circulation focused. Child and infant CPR focuses on compressions first. Neonates are so driven from a lack of oxygen that it is the primary concern that they get the oxygen they need. 3 compressions to 1 breath is recommended for a neonatal patient. Heart rate, blood pressure, movement, and color of the neonate are the primary aspects to look at when providing basic life support.
