Abstract:

Common Neonatal Complications include Neonatal Jaundice, Respiratory distress, Hypoglycemia, sepsis etc. Certain ante-partum and intra-partum risk factors are associated with the need for resuscitation. The main aim of the present study is to assess the common complications of the Neonates in Libya and their managements for healthy sustainable life of the neonates born/admitted at the Shouq Al-kameesh hospital, Al-khoms, Libya. A prospective study was conducted among neonates attended (in-patients and out-patients) at the Shouq Al-kameesh hospital Al-khoms, Libya from April 2018 to March 2020. A total of 294 babies were born/admitted during the period of study. The male-female ratio was 1:0.87. The majority of the babies were aged between 1-30 days. Average birth weights of neonates were 3.2kgs. And 72.10% neonates born with the birth weight of 3-4kgs. Neonatal jaundice (51.01%), sepsis17.00%), low birth weight, preterm birth, TTN, RDS and MAS were the most common morbidities. 89.77% of the babies were undergone phototherapy and 79.91% of babies treated with First line antibiotics. The overall mortality rate was 8.33% with more death during mechanical ventilation usage. Strengthening perinatal care, emergency obstetric care services and neonatal resuscitation skills are necessary to reduce the neonatal complications and mortality.
