Labor risk assessment in a rural community hospital

Labor risk assessment in a rural community hospital

American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology 151(5): 569-574

Unanticipated perinatal catastrophe in a rural community hospital is responsible for the deaths of many potentially salvageable infants. An intrapartum risk scoring system was designed to help anticipate infants needing skilled resuscitation at the rural community hospital. Of infants whose mothers scored as high risk (.gtoreq. 10) 33% required resuscitation while only 6% of infants whose mothers scored < 10 required resuscitation. Sequential Apgar scores of infants in need of resuscitation attended by a skilled resuscitator showed significant improvement compared with Apgar scores of infants not attended by a skilled resuscitator, suggesting at least a short-term benefit for early identification of the infant at risk.
