  • Objective: Evidence suggests increased morbidity, in particular early neonatal respiratory complications, in newborns from elective cesarean section compared with those from vaginal delivery. No reliable maternal predictors of adverse neonatal outcome at elective cesarean section are known. Here, we prospectively tested the hypothesis that a low maternal perfusion index at the baseline phase (i.e., preanesthesia) of the elective cesarean section is a predictor of early adverse neonatal… CONTINUE READING
