Relationship between the Obstetric Profile of Mothers and the Need for Newborn Resuscitation
In most cases, the births in Brazil take place in a quiet way. However, as a transitional period susceptible to complications, the newborn may unexpectedly require resuscitation. Therefore, the presence of at least one trained professional in case of need to perform resuscitation is necessary. This study aimed to correlate the obstetric profile of mothers with neonatal resuscitation. The quantitative approach was used. Data were collected between February and March 2016, in a referral hospital in obstetrics, in a city of Cariri Region. To collect the data, we used a form that included questions related to the purpose of the study. After collection, the data were analyzed, and organized in Excel 2010 spreadsheets program, and presented through tables and graphs built in Word and Excel 2010 programs. We performed a Pearson correlation test with SPSS 22.0 program. With this study, it was concluded that there is a great relationship between the need for resuscitation maneuver and diseases during pregnancy, stock time and type of delivery. Also, deserves due attention to the statistical relationship between death and use of medication and meconium. The obstetric patient profile is important and must be considered in the clinical evolution of the newborn. Many of these factors can be identified even during pregnancy, during prenatal care, thus enabling the implementation of interventions in a timely manner.
