Title:
Prevalence of Elevated Blood Lead Levels in Pregnant SED Women
Abstract:
Prevalence of Elevated Blood Lead Levels in Pregnant SED Women
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2001
Conference Date:November 10 - 14, 2001
Author:Corbett, Robin, PhD
P.I. Institution Name:East Carolina University
Title:
Presently, a dearth of research exists regarding elevated blood lead levels in pregnant women. No maximum acceptable blood lead level has been established for pregnant women. It is estimated that 403,200 pregnant women have lead levels greater than 10 ug/dl. Therefore, this study is to determine the prevalence of elevated blood levels in a prenatal socioeconomically disadvantaged high risk population. Previous investigations have ascertained high lead levels in the water and soil with greater than 38% of pregnant women verbalizing the practice of pica. In addition, information will be collected to determine the relationship among blood lead levels and foods ingested (specifically iron and calcium foods). Blood lead levels for the 50 pregnant women will be compared to the normative lead levels established by the CDC, less than 10 ug/dl. Socioeconomically disadvantaged pregnant women scheduled for routine blood work as part of their prenatal care from a rural community prenatal clinic will be approached for inclusion in this research. Descriptive statistics, ANOVAs and chi square will be used to analyze the data.
