Abstract

OBJECTIVE: To determine if serial versus single course steroids to enhance fetal lung maturity is associated with adverse neonatal or maternal outcome. STUDY DESIGN: A retrospective cohort studv was conducted. Patients who rect ived one full course of beiamethasone (12 mg IM, 2 doses), (n = 102), were compared to those who received an initial course plus serial sieroids 12 mg IM weekK). (u = 107). The rates of ROS. IYH, sepsis. NEC, postpartum endotnetritis, and chorioamnionitis were studied. Neonatal outcomes were stratified for (iA (24 to 28 and 29 to 'i(i weeks). Chi square for linear trend w.is performed to explore a dose response effect. Odds ratio and 95% confidence intervals (CI) were calculated; a p value
