KEY WORDS: Persistent pulmonary hypertension, Birth asphyxia, Meconium aspiration syndrome.
Foetal and neonatal morbidities compared between the two groups were preterm/post-term, low birth weight, congenital malformations, meconium aspiration syndrome, respiratory distress syndrome, admission in neonatal nursery and perinatal death.
Even in four high-risk subgroups, intra-partum suctioning did not decrease the incidence of meconium aspiration syndrome. (See table.) Rates of Meconium-Aspiration Syndrome in High-Risk Infant Subgroups Received Intrapartum Suctioning Before Shoulder Delivery Subgroup Yes No Thick Meconium (n=313) 14% 13% Abnormal Fetal Heart Rate (n=265) 12% 13% Cesarean Delivery (n-782) 4% 5% Needed Resuscitation (n=345) 17% 17% Note: From a randomized study of 2,481 patients.
Volume of amniotic fluid predicts the foetal tolerance in labour and its reduction is associated with increased risk of abnormal Foetal Heart Rate, meconium aspiration syndrome and birth asphyxia.
Other common diagnoses, in descending order of frequency, were: respiratory distress syndrome 601(14.31%), neonatal jaundice 457(10.88%), birth asphyxia 401(9.54%), meconium aspiration syndrome 344 (8.19%) and Intra Uterine Growth Retardation (IUGR) 121(2.88%).
Meconium aspiration syndrome (MAS) is not prevented by intrapartum ONPS and post-natal endotracheal suctioning of vigorous meconium stained infants.
Oligohydramnios or decrease in amniotic fluid volume has been correlated with increased risk of intrauterine growth restriction, meconium aspiration syndrome, severe birth asphyxia, low Apgar scores and congenital abnormalities.
Meconium aspiration syndrome is thought to occur in utero as a result of fetal distress by hypoxia.
Out of 238 neonates 110(46.2%) are normal and 94 (39.5%) are admitted due to low birth weight, 24(10%) are admitted due to neonatal jaundice, 4(1.7%) due to prematurity, 2(8%) due to birth asphyxia, 2(8%) due to hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy, 2(8%) is due to meconium aspiration syndrome and sepsis.
INTRODUCTION: Meconium aspiration syndrome (MAS) is a complex syndrome that ranges in severity from mild respiratory distress to severe respiratory failure, persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn and sometimes death (1) MAS is an infrequent but life-threatening respiratory disease affecting some of the infants born through meconium-stained amniotic fluid (MSAF).
* Meconium aspiration syndrome (MAS) develops in 5% of such neonates, 30% of then require mechanical ventilation and 3-5% expire.
Majority of neonates from the Misoprostol group were admitted for meconium aspiration syndrome and those from Dinoprotone group were admitted to NICU for hyperbilirubinemia.
