Objectives: Perinatal asphyxia is a major cause of neurological morbidity and mortality in India. The purpose of this study was to investigate variations in cord blood nucleated red blood cell (NRBC) with perinatal asphyxia and its relationship to both the severity and short term prognosis of asphyxia
Methods: A prospective study was undertaken at SDM Hospital. A total of 150 neonates were included in the study. Levels of NRBC/100 white blood cells (WBC) and absolute NRBC counts in cord blood were compared for 75 asphyxiated (case group) and 75 normal neonates (control group).
Results : The number of NRBC/100 WBC in the blood of 75 newborns each in the asphyxiated and in the control gr...
