Abstract

Purpose: Delaying the cord clamping for at least 30 seconds in infants who did not require cardiopulmonary resuscitation after birth has been recommended in the revised guidelines of American Academy of Pediatrics in 2015. We aimed to evaluate the effect of delayed cord clamping on hematological and biochemical parameters, need for hospitalization, oxygen, mechanical ventilation, phototherapy, and on sepsis, hyperbilirubinemia rate in late preterm and term infants.
