Neonatal mortality rate is perhaps the most reliable indicator of the perinatal outcome.
An assessment of perinatal outcome can be made through knowledge of causes of death.
This sandy was carried out to evaluate the neonatal death in our hospital.
Live births (n=7309) and death (n=328) during a 6 months period were retrospecificity analyzed.
These were grouped into non-preventable and potentially preventable causes of death.
The single most important (actor contributing to the mortality was respiratory distress (29.3%) followed by sepsis (74.4%) and birth asphyxia (16.2%).
