KEYWORDS: Meconium aspiration syndrome; Meconium stained amniotic fluid; gestational diabetes.
The objectives of the study were to explore the sociocultural aspects including practices, perceptions, and beliefs surrounding meconium and to determine the willingness of mothers to participate in research where meconium would be used to assess exposure to environmental contaminants.
As far as good outcome is concerned, combined obstetric and paediatric care can lead to prevention and reduced severity of meconium aspiration syndrome with low complication rate and decrease mortality.
The 1st studies on the content of toxic compounds, such as narcotics, in meconium samples were published in 1989 [19].
About 12% of patients showed thin meconium and 16% of patients demonstrated thick meconium compared with 10% thin meconium in dinoprostone group and 18% thin meconium in Foley's catheter group [Table 7].
Unlike FAEE, meconium EtG is primarily of maternal origin, as EtG readily crosses the placenta and fetal glucuronidation capacity is limited (23, 24).
Meconium is a blackish-green sticky material composed of debris of intestinal cells, lanugo hair, vernix, liquor, and bile pigments [1, 2].
