Neonates exposed to the components of cigarette smoke in utero are at an increased risk for perinatal death, low birth weight, sudden infant death syndrome and premature delivery. The purpose of this pilot study was to compare blood pressure values in low birth weight neonates (< 2500 grams) born to smoking mothers to the blood pressure values of neonates born to non-smoking mothers. Data were collected through a retrospective chart review of 30 low birth weight, term infants at one hospital in Denver, Colorado. Systolic, diastolic and mean arterial pressures values were obtained from each chart. Fifteen of the infants were born to women who smoked cigarettes during pregnancy while another 15 infants were born to mothers who did not smoke during pregnancy. At birth the infants of smoking mothers had higher systolic (t=2.028; p-.033) and diastolic blood pressure (t=2.328; p=.024) values when compared to infants of non-smoking mothers.
