Chest compressions are initiated if the infant's heart rate remains <60 bpm despite adequate ventilation for 30 seconds. Now only  two thumb technique is recommended because it generates higher systolic and coronary perfusion pressure, and it allows better access for umbilical line insertion.  If the infant is intubated, the person performing chest compressions should move to the head of the bed to perform chest compression. This will allow another team member access to the infant to insert an umbilical line should it be deemed necessary.  Whenever chest compressions are provided, the oxygen concentration is increased to 100 percent
