PMID:  10617406     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The evaluation of the depressed newborn as a possible role in intrapartum asphyxia must be based on the objective findings of the fetal heart rate tracing, umbilical cord blood gas, and newborn neurologic function. Using these points as a basis for long-term followup, the following principles have been elucidated: Intrapartum asphyxia is an uncommon cause of childhood neurologic disfunction, the intrapartum insult necessary to cause long-term neurologic dysfunction is profound, and the child who does not manifest encephalopathy in the newborn period will not suffer long-term neurologic dysfunction that can be attributed to intrapartum asphyxia.
