Abstract :

Premature infants is a factor of infant mortality in Indonesia. In addition to causing deaths, if the baby continues to live it will be smitten by a variety of morbidities, such as abnormalities and infections. Premature infants are believed to have many an issue in his life such as breathing problems, low intelligence, behavioral and emotional disorders, until the occurrence of autism. Costs spent by families to care for premature babies also not small. Until now, the relative incidence of premature delivery did not change preformance last 40 years. By considering this, especially coupled with the continued high incidence of premature deliveries in Indonesia, we need to hold and the amount of research on factors influencing premature birth occurs. Knowing the incidence and factors that influence preterm birth in Dr.Soetomo hospital during January to March 2011. The research was done by finding the number of preterm birth and maternal medical records to record the number listed in the book babies born in the maternity room Dr. Soetomo Hospital during January to March 2011. Then ask for medical records data, recorded by the variables that have been determined, process and analyze data. Factors that are considered to have significant influence on the incidence of preterm labor include: age is too young (< 20 years) or who are too old (> 35 years), parity multiparous and grande multiparous group, less education (less than received his college ), multiple pregnancy and hydramnios, previous obstetric history included in the bad obstetric history, premature rupture of membranes, and eclampsia/preeclampsia. There are many factors that influence the occurrence of preterm labor. There is no dominant factor that will inevitably lead to preterm labor. The results of this study is less accurate, because the researchers did not compare with the overall population of mothers who gave birth . When compared with the overall population, most likely results would be different, so the results will be better and accurate. (FMI 2012;48:131-136)
