In brief: Not subtle

Typically a birth complicated by significant birth asphyxia, which is where the baby is not getting enough blood and oxygen to the brain, is followed by a floppy baby, often with little crying or breathing without help from the doctors and nurses, seizures may also be a complication.
Baby's may need to be on a breathing machine. Mild birth asphyxia may only have low tone that goes away.

In brief: Lack of respiratory

At delivery, a lack of spontaneous respiratory effort, depressed heart rate and no tone are the clear indicators of a probable lack of oxygen prior to or at the time of delivery.
Primary asphyxia recovers quickly with stimulation. However secondary asphyxia required mask/bag ventilation and sometimes intubation and cardiac resucitation.
