group 2 received transfusion in the first 3 days of life (p = 0.384). The number and volume of PRBC transfusions were similar in both groups (Table 1) . Comparison of laboratory outcomes resulted in statistically significance only in median Hb values at first (16.8 g/dL [range, 14.1 to 18.8 g/dL] and 15.4 g/ dL [range, 12.3 to 18.5 g/dL]; p = 0.019) and 24th hour after birth (16.1 g/dL [range, 13.4 to 21 g/dL] and 14.9 g/dL [range,10.2 to 18 g/dL]; p = 0.021) between UCM and control groups,

Conclusions UCM in delivery room results in a higher Hb level in the first day of life. In these groups of infants, phlebotomy losses may impact the transfusion need.
