Resuscitation is undertaken to establish independent breathing and heartbeat or to treat depressed respiratory effect and to correct metabolic disturbances. Active resuscitation methods range from less advanced methods like suction or oxygen therapy to more advanced methods, such as external cardiac massage and ventilation.
Data are for liveborn babies only. Due to a change in collection of data on resuscitation method, data are available from 2019.
The data visualisation below presents data on the active resuscitation status of liveborn babies, by selected maternal and baby characteristics, for 2019 and 2020.
