The newborn's temperature is 37 ˚C (98.6 ˚F), pulse is 50/min, and blood pressure is 60/30 mmHg. Her lungs are clear to auscultation. There is no cardiac murmur. Electrocardiogram shows atrioventricular dissociation with otherwise unremarkable P waves and QRS complexes. An echocardiogram is normal.
