Asphyxia remains a common problem in neonatal units and is a significant cause of morbidity and death in term and preterm neonates. Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE) is a type of brain damage that occurs when an infant‟s brain doesn‟t receive enough oxygen and blood. It is a dangerous condition that requires immediate medical intervention. Hypoxic hurt camwood impact the greater part organs of the neonate , kidneys are really touchy will hypoxia, renal inadequacy might happen inside 24 hrs of a hypoxic insult, which whether prolonged, might prompt irreversible damage. Might have been should foresee the frequency of AKI for expression infant for Dad Furthermore on associate it for the seriousness about hidrotic. Sixty fullterm infant which would diagnosed as Dad were included, Investigations were completed In the third day of term. Serum urea and creatinine levels were measured utilizing those Bio frameworks reagent unit. Those study indicated serum urea and creatinine levels altogether expanded for propelled hidrotic phases. Neonates with propelled hidrotic stage needed fundamentally higher frequency about AKI.
