Background: Patent ductus arteriosus or patent arterial duct (PDA) is a condition in which a structure called the ductus arteriosus, normal in fetal life, remains into infancy and onwards, when it should have disappeared. Thus, in this study we want to discuss about frequency of its symptoms and risk factors.
Materials and Methods: It is a descriptive study which has been done among 100 newborns registered in Ghaem Hospital of Mashhad. Sampling was gathered easily.
Results: The most prevalent symptom among newborn babies was systolic heart murmur (89%). According to the obtained risk factors, hypoxia (71%) and acidosis (70%) are followed by prematurity (41%). Out of all registered newborn babies 68% were suffering from associated disorders.
Conclusion: For achieving an on-time diagnosis of PDA, clinical examination of heart and respiratory symptoms must be examined very precisely. Newborn babies must be examined in terms of two risk factors: prematurity and light weight.
Keywords: PDA, Systolic Heart Murmur, Low birth weight, Prematurity
