Timing of Planned Caesarean Section and Morbidity of the Newborn

2014-07-24 14:14:30 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The caesarean section rate is rising globally. About 10% of the newborns are submitted to a neonatal department after planned caesarean section, primarily with respiratory disorders. More children are submitted if caesarean is performed earlier in pregnancy.

Study hypothesis: More newborns are admitted after planned caesarean at 38 weeks and 3 days of gestation than after 39 weeks and 3 days of gestation.

Aim of study: To compare elective caesarean section performed at 38 weeks and 3 days of gestation with 39 weeks and 3 days of gestation. According to this timing to determine the proportion of newborns admitted within 48 hours after birth.
