Étude de la prévalence de l’hypoglycémie chez les nouveau-nés macrosomes

Abstract : Objectives – To evaluate the prevalence of hypoglycemia in macrosomic babies in whom weight is the only risk factor of neonatal hypoglycemia and to determine a more relevant threshold percentile to decrease excessive screening. Materials and methods – Descriptive, retrospective and monocentric study conducted at the maternity of Grenoble Alpes University Hospital from the 01/11/2017 to 21/01/2020. The threshold of neonatal hypoglycemia was 2.2 mmol/L. Results – Among 156 newborns included in the study, 19.2% suffered for one or more hypoglycemia in the first 48 hours of life. It appears that 75.5% of hypoglycemia have occured in the first hour of life. Concerning the birth weight, the most relevant threshold to detect hypoglycemia would be the 97e percentil (AUC = 0,64 IC95% = [0,52 ; 0,75]) Conclusion – The prevalence of neonatal hypoglycemia is comparable to other places of study. Its screening and threshold percentile should be reviewed and updated in order to improve the comfort of newborns at risk of hypoglycemia in the maternity ward.
