263 Asphyctic Renal Damage is Increased by The Use of Pure Oxygen Upon Resuscitation

Background: Perinatal asphyxia is responsible for multiple organ damage which is increased upon re-oxygenation by the generation of an excess of oxygen free radicals. Proximal tubular damage and the subsequent acute renal failure are common complications of severe asphyxia. Thus, limiting the amount of oxygen supplied upon resuscitation seems an adequate… (More)
