  • Perinatal Asphyxia is one of the top three causes of infant mortality in developing countries, resulting to the death of about 1.2 million newborns every year. At its early stages, the presence of asphyxia cannot be conclusively determined visually or via physical examination, but by medical diagnosis. In resource-poor settings, where skilled attendance at birth is a luxury, most cases only get detected when the damaging consequences begin to manifest or worse still, after death of the affected… CONTINUE READING
