The RT is called to the bedside of a term infant who has
mild respiratory distress, is receiving nasal cannula O2 of 1 L/min, has an
FIO2 of 1.0, and has a SpO2 of 75%. Shortly after birth, the infant’s chest
radiograph revealed a normal size heart and clear, slightly hyperlucent lung
fields with no infiltrates. The bedside nurse describes that she has just
finished taking the infant’s vital signs and changing its diaper. Before her
touching the infant, the infant’s saturation was 96%. What is this infant’s
problem? What should the RT do?
