Adrenaline Injections to Children Born at Elective CS
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
Children born after elective C-section have a greater risk of respiratory problems and hypoglycemia - most likely due to a lower concentration of stress hormones compared to children born vaginally. Hypothesis: can we eliminate or reduce the risk of respiratory distress and hypoglycaemia by administrating adrenaline to the newborn.
