How do you revive a dying newborn kitten?

I have done this with a puppy but not a cat. Once I realized that the pup was not breathing I began to massage its chest ( squeezing just hard enough to feel the ribcage compress a bit to get the heart pumping ) and using your mouth to cover its entire muzzle ( nose and mouth ) blow an ever so light breath into its lungs after every 5 or so compressions of the chest. It may not be the correct way but the puppy lived.
