• A child born with lung or heart complications may also have an increased risk of experiencing symptoms associated with birth asphyxia. (wisegeek.org)
  • Objectives: To identify socio-demographic and clinical risk factors associated with birth asphyxia in Matiari District of Sindh Province, Pakistan. (scirp.org)
  • Result: The factors found to be associated with birth asphyxia mortality in Matiari District of Sindh Province, Pakistan are maternal education, history of stillbirths, pregnancy complications (including smelly or excessive vaginal discharge and anemia), intrapartum complications (including fever, prolong or difficult labour, breech delivery, cord around child's neck, premature delivery, large baby size) and failure to establish spontaneous respiration after birth. (scirp.org)
  • Conclusion and Recommendation: There is an immediate need to develop strategies for early identification and management of factors associated with birth asphyxia by involving women, families, communities, community health workers, health professionals and policy makers. (scirp.org)
  • Normally hypernatremia is expected in the early neonatal period as there is contraction of extracellular fluid due to excretion of water through kidney and high insensible water loss whereas in neonates with perinatal asphyxia there might be hyponatremia as there is increased secretion of anti-diuretic hormone (ADH) in neonates with HIE which leads to increased water retention and hence dilutional hyponatremia [ 6 ].

  • Certain authors stress that the vital functions of animals can be restored by means of artificial 'heart and lungs' after period of clinical death longer than those that can be reversed by means of the more commonly used methods of resuscitation (arterial blood transfusion, heart massage, and artificial respiration).

  • Based on Receiver operator curve analysis, the assessment of the prevalence of CD4+ IL-1β+ and CD4+ IL-1β+ CD49d+ cells at 6 h appears to be able to predict the severity of the insult at an early stage in asphyxia. (biomedcentral.com)

  • One of the extreme consequences is a political climate and legal mechanisms which permit prosecutors and judges to convict poor, young women for terms of up to 50 years when they experience obstetrical complications, have unattended births resulting in the death of the neonate, and then seek emergency treatment in public hospitals.

  • It is considered a medical emergency and immediate steps must be taken to establish respiration to prevent long-term damage or death. (wisegeek.org)
  • Once the child is born, the risk of asphyxia does not diminish until regular respiration is established. (wisegeek.org)
  • A diagnosis of asphyxia is confirmed by the administration of basic tests which observe the infant's heartbeat, color, respiration, and reflexes. (wisegeek.org)
  • It was found that use of this method to treat clinical death ensured sufficient circu-lation to support the vital activity of the brain, eliminate myocar-dial hypoxia, and restore cardiac activity. (avinpharma.ru)
  • Research carried out along these lines has confirmed the possibility of restoring respi-ration and cardiac activity by means of extracorporeal circulation in cases of clinical death due to loss of blood, drowning, asphyxia, explosive decom-pression, electric shock, and prolonged hypo-tension.
