A nurse performing a newborn assessment would expect what respiratory rate and heart rate as a normal finding?
Number 3 is correct.
Normal findings in a newborn include a respiratory rate between 30 and 50 breaths/minute and a heart rate between 120 and 160 beats/minute. RR 46 breaths/minute and HR 153 beats/minute would fall within normal limits.
