Worldwide, 5-10% of all newborns require some kind of intervention at birth. Thus, it is important to teach the Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) to all personnel attending deliveries. This program provides a systematic approach to different situations encountered at birth to facilitate neonatal resuscitation. The NRP has been embraced by public health authorities among different countries. In this paper we summarize the most recent recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and American Heart Association (AHA) to update the NRP; these are based on different levels of evidence. The knowledge and practice of these recommendations will certainly help to improve neonatal outcomes and to decrease asphyxia and its complications.

Palabras llave : Neonatal Resuscitation Program; perinatal asphyxia; American Academy of Pediatrics; American Heart Association.
