Amnioticfluid phospholipidsfrom 346 patients’ specimens were quantifiedand evaluated against the clinicaloutcome (i.e., respiratory distress syndrome or normal respiratory function). Concentrationsof lecithin, sphingomyelin,phosphatidylglycerol,and the Iecithin/sphingomyelinreflectance ratiowere evaluated by ordered frequency distributionand stepwisediscriminantfunctionanalysis.The lecithin/sphingomyelin ratio was the best single test for discriminating between respiratorydistress syndrome and… CONTINUE READING
