Procedural aspects of caesarean section

Babies born preterm are at increased risk of respiratory distress syndrome. One UK survey (n = 179,701) of babies born at 34 weeks of gestation or more reported 0.08% (149 babies) had respiratory distress requiring surfactant therapy. Of these babies, 24% (n = 36) were born at or after 37 weeks but 88% (n = 32) of these babies were born by planned caesarean section (CS). [evidence level 3]
