TO STUDY THE IMPACT OF OXYGEN SATURATION OF NEONATES ON THEIR IMMEDIATE OUTCOME BY USING TOPS SCORE
Keywords:Oxygen Saturation, Neonates & TOPS score.
Background & Method: This study was carried out at Index Medical College Hospital & Research Centre, Indore, when baby come to scnu, SPO2 is measured by pulse oximeter (ChoiceMMed MD300C2.). Fit the pulse oximeter on the foot, the light part of the sensor should be placed over soft tissue supported by a bony area. If the foot is cold or blue the pulse oximeter can be attached at the wrist. If the signal is poor re-position the probe. In a resuscitation situation the pulse oximeter should be attached to the right arm to read pre-ductal saturations.
Result: In this study, 28.46% newborns oxygen saturation was less than 85% and 71.53% newborns oxygen saturation was more than 85%. In this study, 67.81% newborns having oxygen saturation less than 85% and 1.9% newborns having oxygen saturation more than 85% died during first 48 hrs of admission. Chi square test was applied and p value was <0.05 and was significant.
Conclusion: Most of neonatal transports are self transport without any pre-treatment stabilization or care during transport These new born thus transported can become cold, blue and hypoglycaemic. This can have serious clinical implications. As it is seen in this study that all those babies who were given proper care during transportation were less affected & more over survival was also better among these babies.
