ABSTRACT:

Objective: The objective of our research work was to study the factors of neonatal asphyxia at Indus Hospital Manawan Lahore. Patient and methods: Our research study consist of ninety-seven newborn neonates all these patient were admitted in birth care unit of Indus Hospital Manawan Lahore from April 2018 to January 2019 the Apgar score of all these deliveries were low. The detailed maternal study was conducted; noted their ages, age of gestational, complexity & sedation at the time of labor. For numerical significance approach the Chi-squared (x2) test was conducted. Results: 9602 live birth issue were rise in Indus Hospital Manawan Lahore from April 2018 to January 2019 the Apgar score of all these deliveries were less than seven at five minutes was 12.9/1000 live born issue; Seizures appeared in twelve out of ninety-seven newborn issue. There was no numerically consequential relation among neonatal asphyxia, serous asphyxia and neonatal weight, gestational age, parity of mothers and maternal disease. There were marked and significantly higher percentages of deliveries by emergency C-section among asphyxiated group compared to the control group. Conclusion: Prematurity, intrauterine growth retardation, antepartum hemorrhage and maternal toxemia were associated with higher incidence of asphyxia. We propose further examinations to be done utilizing a substantial example estimate and including extra risk factors as absence of antenatal consideration and maternity specialist obstruction. Key Words: Gestational, Apgar score, Perfusion, Antenatal, Neonate, Biochemically Asphyxia, Respiration.
