A complete, objective and systematic documentation of delivery room resuscitation is important for research, for quality improvement, for teaching and as a reference for post resuscitation care. However, documentation during neonatal resuscitation is usually paper-based, retrospective, inaccurate and unreliable. In this narrative review, we discuss the strengths and pitfalls of current documentation methods in neonatal resuscitation, as well as the challenges of introducing new or emerging technologies in this field. In particular, we discuss innovations in electronic and automated medical records, video recording and Smartphones and Tablet Apps. Given the lack of a consensus standard, we finally propose a list of items that should be part of any neonatal resuscitation documentation method.


KEY WORDS: Newborn; Resuscitation; Delivery room; Documentation
