This observational study assessed the feasibility of using pulse oximeter during neonatal resuscitation in 428 term and preterm (32-36 weeks) neonates. The oxygen saturation reading was obtained by 1-minute in 152 (35.5%) neonates. Preterm neonates and babies born by LSCS took relatively longer time for first detection of saturation.
