PMID:  7136653     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The risk of neonatal respiratory disorders was calculated in an unselected, total population together with the relative contributions of some factors found associated with an increased risk. Postnatal asphyxia, expressed as a low one minute Apgar score, and low gestational age were substantially, independent risk factors. Caesarean section added, though less markedly, to the risk of the above disorders.
