Objective: - The aim of this study was to find out the possibility about the birth asphyxia. Methodology: - This study was carried out at DHQ Hospital Gujranwala and the duration of this study was from January, 2019 to January, 2020, consist of 90 new-born babies, 30 Females and 60 Males. They delivered while having Apgar score low. For assessment of statistical significance of the data we applied Chi-square analysis after having data of problems, similarity, sedation in the period of labor full maternal history, concerning their age and developmental age. Results: This study was carried out at DHQ Hospital Gujranwala and the duration of this study was from January, 2019 to January, 2020, a total 90 babies took birth. The Seizures occurrence was found in 10 / 90 newborns and frequency of Apgar scores less than 7 at 5 minutes was observed in 10.5 each out of every 90 new childbirths. There was no similarity of mothers and maternal diseases, gestational age: bond between delivery asphyxia; severe asphyxia and birth weightage, and these were also not statistically significant. There were notably high delivery percentages through emergency C-S (Caesarean Section) which were observed among the patients of asphyxia than the control group. Conclusions: - Maternal toxemia, intra-uterine progressive retardation, Prematurity and ante-partum blood loss were considered as to be the main cause of high frequencies of asphyxia. We propose additional study be carried out on a greater population and counting supplementary possible factors as antenatal care requirement and mid-wife interaction.
