Keywords:meconium, labor, liquor
Background & Method: The present study was conducted in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Amaltas Institute of Medical Sciences, Dewas. 904 cases with OR without Intra-partum meconium staining were selected for the study, following exclusion criteria. Study Group (Group1), comprised of 100 cases with Intra- partum meconium stained liquor.
Result: The mean age is 25.94 and stand deviation is 4.78. In table – 3 in the study group of age 20 years and below had MSL in 11 cases (9.73%), 49 cases (24.13%) in the age group of 21 years to 25 years, In the 26 years to 29 years of age group there were 17 patients (6.80%) with meconium stained liquor. 14 cases (9.21%) were in the age group of 30 to 34 years. The age group of 35 years and above had 9 patients (10.46%). The mean age is 25.94 and ± SD 4.78. no significant was found.
Conclusion: Thin MSL was in present in 50% of cases where as 50% had moderate and thick staining which had significant adverse perinatal outcome. A selective aggressive approach to the neonate, exposed to MSL resulting in reduction of neonatal intubation and reduces MSA. Thick MSL alone should alert the physician to high risk fetal condition.
