Hemostasiopathy as an Indicator of Acute Hypoxia in Newborns

G.I. Posternak, K.V. Pyzina


In Ukraine, in the structure of perinatal morbidity, mortality and disability in children, asphyxia remains in first place for the last ten years. Among patients, who are in critical condition, the risk of hemostasiopathy is greatest in neonates. These phenomena are caused by the features of state and functioning of hemostatic system in newborns. In term and preterm neonates with intrapartum asphyxia there is a high risk of DIC with manifestations of both thrombosis and bleedings. Early diagnosis of disturbances in hemostatic system will prevent not only to coagulopathy, but also multiple organ failure. Solving this problem, we can influence the reduction of mortality in infants with intrapartum asphyxia.
