STUDY OF SOME HAEMOGLOBIN DERIVATIVES LEVELS IN THE BLOOD OF WOMEN DURING DELIVERY, COMPARED WITH THOSE IN THE UMBILICAL CORD BLOOD OF THEIR NEWBORNS

Abstract

This research included the estimation the concentration hemoglobin and the levels of some its derivatives which include the Oxyhaemoglobin, Methamoglobin, Carboxyhaemoglobin and Sulfhaemoglobin in the blood of women during delivery (90 sample) and compared it with 90 samples of their levels in the umbilical cord blood of their newborns (43 female and 47 male). The samples of this research were collected from the newcomer women to the general hospitals of Al-Fallujah and Al-Ameria and their newborns ,women ranged in age from 18-40 years old and who are apparently healthy, and included both natural (vaginal) and caesarean delivery. The findings of this research reached to find high significantly differences (P≤0.01) in haemoglobin levels for the group of women during delivery and newborn with average (11.676 ± 1.0) and (16.566 ± 1.8) g/dl at the succession.Also it finds high significantly diferences (P≥0.01) between the levels of Hemoglobin in women blood during the delivery compared with those of their newborns. Their levels reached (0.611 ± 0.1 , 0.604 ± 0.1 , 0.557 ± 0.9 , 0.530 ± 0.9) for each derivative of Oxyhaemoglobin, Methmoglobin, Carboxyhaemoglobin and Sulfhaemoglobin at the succession in women blood during the childbirth. While their levels reached to (0.783 ± 0.13 , 0..768 ± 0.13 , 0.721 ± 0.11 , 0.677 ± 0.12) in the umbilical cord blood of their newborn for the same derivatives at the succession.It also found a simple positive correlation (r = 0.259) between each of the concentration of the haemoglobin of the mother and haemoglobin of their newborns and found that the weight of the mother influence the values of rates of the derivatives Carboxyhaemoglobin and Methmoglobin for the newborns, as values were significantly higher (P=0.05) in category gravimetric (60-50) kg , compared with other categories of these derivatives, while the derivative of the Oxyhaemoglobin arose significantly(P=0.05) in the age group (80 and over) kg. While the haemoglobin and its derivatives not affected both in the blood of newborns with the age of mother , type of delivery, and sex , weight of the newborns.
