ABSTRACT:

Objective: This study was conducted to evaluate the rate of bad perinatal consequences of patients having poor health conditions. Materials and Methods: We conducted this cross-sectional descriptive study at Services Hospital, Lahore (July 2017 to March 2018). In this study 273 patients, ageing from 20 to 35 years were observed. All the patients were having pregnancies of singleton nature and on ultrasound analysis, they all were having a poor biophysical profile (BPP) (A score of <8 out of 10 by taking 5-parameters). From 32 to 42 weeks was the usual gestational age. The rate of parity and the adverse perinatal result had been measured. The data was classified for controlling the modifiers as parity, maternal and gestational age. Results: The total number of patients was 273, in which the patients from 20 to 25 years of ages were 42.1% (115), the patients from 26 to 30 years of ages were 35.6% (97) and the patients from 31 to 35 years of ages were 22.3% (61). The number of patients, having gestational age from 32 to 37 weeks, was 35.5% (97) and those having gestational age from 38 to 42 weeks were 64.5% (176). Most of the patients had been multiparous 59.0% (161) and most of them had cesarean 72.2% (197) and their Apgar score was poor at 5 minutes 90.1% (246). Conclusion: The rate of adverse perinatal consequences, of patients having poor BPP (biophysical profile), like cesarean and Apgar score (at five minutes) was higher. Keywords: Cesarean Section, Poor Biophysical Profile, Gestational Age and APGAR Score.
