Abstract

 Introduction: The aim of study was to compare UMBILICAL CORD BLOOD SELENIUM LEVELs in RESPIRATORY DISTRESS SYNDROME (RDS) and non RDS preterm babies.Materials and Methods: UMBILICAL CORD BLOOD SELENIUM LEVELs of all preterm newborn born during a 6-month period were enrolled in the study. They were divided into two groups: RDS and non-RDS. SELENIUM LEVEL was assessed by using electro-thermal atomic absorption spectrometry and serum concentration of selenium was compared between the two groups.Results: During the study 150 preterm babies were studied. Mean UMBILICAL CORD BLOOD SELENIUM LEVELs were 98.5 mg/L. Among 150 preterm babies 27 (18%) had RDS and 82% no RDS. Mean UMBILICAL CORD BLOOD SELENIUM LEVEL in RDS and non RDS groups were 96.5 and, 96.6 mg/L respectively (P=0.64). There were no significant differences between the two groups with regard to UMBILICAL CORD BLOOD SELENIUM LEVELs.Conclusion: In this study there was no significant relationship between selenium UMBILICAL CORD BLOOD level and RESPIRATORY DISTRESS SYNDROME in preterm neonates.
