Abstract

Background: Preterm birth is an alarming cause of complication in pregnancy that leads to an immense
burden for imitation of children to their householders and health care providers. The present study was to
find out the functional relationship of preterm birth (PTB) and its study parameters at the Krishna Hospital
and Medical Research Centre Karad, Maharashtra from 2016–17. In SPSS (20.0), IBM, INDIA, multiple
regression method was used to analyze the results.
Methods: This was cross-sectional study done at rural tertiary care hospital, Karad. The examination was
done in the ob-gyn. ward and various details were collected in the form of the questionnaire at present
that ward with support of oral discussion of that patient.
Results: Age and many more demographic variables were significantly associated with its fetal outcome of
preterm birth. Also, it seems that pregnancy-induced hypertension, placenta diameter; numbers of meals,
delivery mode, and those reasons were effective measures of risk factors of assessment of preterm birth.
Conclusions: All the variables analyzed in this study were the part of the determinants of PTB needs
to check time to time during the period of pregnancy. Heath care providers still need to take efforts for
pregnancy-induced hypertension, placenta diameter.
