Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is It is published monthly.

Abstract

Aim: To investigate the relationship between base deficit (BD) and C-reactive protein (CRP) findings evaluated during diagnosis of infants followed up for a diagnosis of perinatal asphyxia (PA).
Material and Methods: This prospective observational study included 66 cases as 33 cases treated and followed up for a diagnosis of PA in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit of Harran University Medical Faculty Hospital, and a control group of 33 healthy infants. Using a syringe washed with heparin, a fetal blood sample of 2ml was taken from the umbilical artery of the neonates thought to have PA, and blood gases were examined in an anaerobic environment. CRP values were obtained from spectrophotometric biochemical analysis of the 2ml blood sample using an Architect C16000 device (Abbott Diagnostics, Abbott Park, IL, USA).
Results: Evaluation was made of 33 infants with a diagnosis of PA hospitalised in NICU and a control group of 33 healthy infants. All the cases were statistically similar in respect of gestational week at birth (GW), birthweight (BW), and gender. In the blood gas examinations of the cord blood, pH value was determined as mean 6.9 (range, 6.50-7.06), mean BD as 17mmol/L (range, 12-28 mmol/L), and CRP values as 0.2-57 mg/dl. The CRP values of the PA cases on days 2 and 3 were determined to be significantly higher than those of the control group (p0.001). As the BD value at the time of diagnosis increased, so there was determined to be a significant increase in CRP value, and this was confirmed by the Spearman correlation test (r1:0.423, p1:0.014) (r2:0.342, p2:0.05) (r3:0.451, p3:0.009). No statistically significant relationship was determined between the pH value in blood gas and the CRP level (p:0.18).
Conclusion: The results of this study demonstrated that the CRP level was statistically significantly higher in cases that developed asphyxia than in the control group. A positive correlation was determined between BD at diagnosis and CRP level. A high CRP level during treatment and follow-up can be considered for use as a supportive finding showing the severity of hypoxia.
