    • Umbilical cord blood pH and risk factors for acidaemia in neonates in Kerman 

      Modarressnejad, V. (‎2005)‎
      A prospective cross-sectional study was carried out to determine the relationship and predictive value of umbilical cord blood pH for adverse neonatal outcomes.

There was also a significant relation between ...
