Drying and suctioning of mouth followed by nose stimulates the newborn. If these steps do not induce effective breathing additional tactile stimulus can help. This is done by rubbing the back, trunk and extremities of the newborn. Flicking of the soles is no longer recommended.

If these attempts fail, then prolonged or vigorous stimulation is not helpful and one should go ahead with positive pressure ventilation.
