Study of hematological and coagulation profile of term neonates born to mothers with PIH as compared to term neonates born to normotensive mothers
Journal Title: Medpulse International Journal of Pediatrics - Year 2018, Vol 5, Issue 3
Objectives: To study the changes in Hematological and Coagulation profile of newborns born to mothers with hypertensive disorders of pregnancy and in neonates born to normotensive mothers. Methods: A prospective study to determine the hematological and coagulation parameters conducted on 100 neonates born to mothers with hypertensive disorders of pregnancy in comparision to 100 healthy neonates born to normotensive mothers born during the same period recruited from postnatal wards during December 2015 to May 2017. Results: There was significantly higher incidence of thrombocytopenia, increased Red cell count and Mean corpuscular volume in study group compared to control group which was highly statistical significant. The mean value of PT and a PTT were significantly higher in study group as compared to control group. Also there was increased need for caesarean section and had a higher number of IUGR and SGA babies in study group compared to control group. Conclusion: Early hematological screening of babies born to mothers with PIH are recommended to facilitate early detection and management of serious neonatal complications to decrease morbidity, improved growth, development and survival.
