Our study involves 414 neonate subjects out of which 202 are under inclusion criteria and 212 are under exclusion criteria. Among which neonates are assessed using hospital criteria of RDS along with risk factors considerations, in which chest indrawing, grunting are common physical signs and c??-section, prematurity, GD are more prone risk factors to neonates.
