AIM: To document the oxygen saturation (SpO(2) ) levels, general physical signs and laboratory characteristics during the first 30 minutes of life. METHODS: Forty healthy singleton full-term neonates delivered vaginally (n=33) or by Caesarian section (n=7) included to this prospective observational study. After delivery, the SpO(2) levels of the upper (right hand) and lower (dorsum of the right foot) extremities of the neonates lying on the Servo-controlled radiant heater in the delivery room were measured simultaneously with oximetre probes (Oxiprobe BM-270) placed at the 1(st) , 5(th) , 10(th) , 15(th) , 20(th) , 25(th) , and 30(th) minutes. The correlation between the pre- and postductal SpO(2) levels and different variables (vital signs, capillary refill time recorded at the 1(st) and 15(th) minutes, cord pH and haemoglobin values, and Apgar scores at the 1(st) and 5(th) minutes) was examined. RESULTS: The 1(st) minute pre- and postductal SpO(2) levels were 82.3%±7.34% and 79.08%±8.16% (p>0.05), respectively. The preductal values at the 5(th) , 10(th) , and 15(th) minutes were statistically higher than the postductal values (89.73%±6.01%, 93.43%±4.06%, and 94.53%±3.19% vs. 85.53%±6.92%, 89.9%±4.91%, 92.83%±3.92%, respectively). The SpO(2) values were the same regardless of the mode of delivery. No correlations were found between the pre- and postductal SpO(2) and other variables. CONCLUSIONS: Oxygen saturation was not affected by the mode of delivery, was independent of Apgar scores, cord haemoglobin, cord pH, vital signs, and capillary refill time in the first few minutes of life, and did not reach 90% in the first 5 minutes of life in healthy full-term neonates.
