Abstract

Abstract Objective: To determine the long-term outcome of infants born with cord pH ≤7.0 and no clinical evidence of asphyxia at birth. Design: Setting: Tertiary Referral Centre. A prospective matched cohort study was conducted. 51 term infants were recruited following singleton birth with venous cord pH ≤7.0.For each recruited baby a healthy baby with normal cord pH >7.20 was recruited matched for gestation, gender and mode of delivery. Ages and Stages Questionnaires (ASQ)(TM) and Health Screening Questionnaires (HSQ) were sent out at 24 months of age. Two independent assessors, blinded to the case assignment, reviewed intrapartum and neonatal events to look for clinical evidence of birth asphyxia among the cases. Result: From 102 infants recruited, 62 questionnaires (24 cases, 38 controls) were returned. 20 matched pairs with no clinical evidence of birth asphyxia were available for analysis. The groups were similar except in terms of birth weight; the pH
