Abstract

Aim: To compare neonatal serum bilirubin and certain haematological factors in Normal, induced and Caesarean section.
Materials and Methods: 90 neonates were divided into three groups according to the mode of delivery (normal, oxytocin induced vaginal delivery & caesarean) and neonatal serum bilirubin levels were estimated and compared with each group.
Result: Out of the 90 subjects, it was found that there is statistically significant increase of neonatal serum bilirubin in oxytocin induced vaginal delivery and caesarean section on day 3. In contrast, on day 1 and day 5, statistically significant neonatal hperbilirubinemia is noticed only in oxytocin induced vaginal delivery.
Conclusion: It is concluded from the present study that neonatal serum bilirubin rises from day 1 to day 3 and then start decreasing on day 5. On day 3, neonatal serum bilirubin is statistically significant increase in neonates delivered by oxytocin induced or Caesarean sections.
