Delayed Umbilical Cord Clamping in Premature Neonates.
Obstetrics and Gynecology, 07/31/2012
Kaempf Joseph W et al. –This before and after investigation estimated the clinical outcomes in premature neonates who had delayed umbilical cord clamping compared with a similar group who had early umbilical cord clamping. It was concluded that delayed umbilical cord clamping can safely be performed in singleton premature neonates and is associated with a higher hematocrit, less delivery room resuscitation, and no significant changes in neonatal morbidities.
