Abstract

Newborn emergencies that occur in the delivery room are frequently the result of life-threatening congenital anomalies that can result in death or severe disability if not treated in the immediate postnatal period. Prompt recognition and treatment of such disorders are paramount to ensuring the wellbeing of the infant. As congenital anomalies are frequently being diagnosed earlier due to improved prenatal detection, the coordination of planned interventions for life-threatening malformations is also becoming more common. This article serves as a guide for the presentation and initial management of the most common non-cardiac, newborn surgical emergencies.
