Abstract: The main objective of the study is to determine the incidence rate and common risk factors that cause RDS .by this we can advise mothers on early precaution and safety measures which helps to reduce the mortality rate. 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. All neonates? mothers are examined by considering baby demographic details, antenatal details, details of labor, perinatal history, clinical examinations and risk factors was ascertained.
