Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The study was designed to compare the biochemical characteristics of neonates transported by qualified transport team, before and after stabilization, interventions required and setbacks during these transports. Prospective cohort study of all neonatal transports during a period of 13 months from various maternity and pediatric centers was conducted; 151 babies who fulfilled the criteria were included in the study. 58% of babies <32 wks were hypothermic, 21% of the total babies were hypotensive and a total of 25% of the babies were hypoxic at the referral hospital. Intubation was done by the transport team in 23% of babies and 25 % of the babies were transported on a ventilator. There was a significant improvement in the clinical condition of all these babies in relation to temperature control, sugar control, oxygenation and blood pressure after stabilization.
