This study has been completed.

Hvidovre University Hospital Identifier:
First received: May 5, 2006
Last updated: June 27, 2007
Last verified: June 2007
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.

Condition Intervention
Respiratory Distress Hypoglycemia Drug: Adrenaline

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Double-Blind
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Official Title: Can the Risk of RD and Hypoglycemia in Children Born at Elective CS be Reduced by Injection of Adrenaline

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • respiratory distress
  • hypoglycemia

Enrollment: 270
Study Start Date: June 2006
Study Completion Date: June 2007

Ages Eligible for Study:   up to 1 Day   (Child)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes

Inclusion Criteria:

  • All children born at elective section with gestational age more than 37 + 0

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Children in whom a serious malformation was found during pregnancy assuming this malformation will lead to very early death or respiratory problems.
  • Serious malformations (ex.anencephalia) will be excluded at birth
  • Other malformations will be estimated by investigator whether it will lead to exclusion.
