Abstract The object of this review was to determine the incidence, morbidity, and mortality of an umbilical arterial pH < 7.0; the incidence of hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy; and the proportion of cerebral palsy associated with intrapartum hypoxia-ischemia in nonanomalous term infants. A systematic review of the English language literature on the association between intrapartum hypoxia-ischemia and neonatal encephalopathy was conducted by using Pubmed and Embase. For nonanomalous term infants, the incidence of an umbilical arterial pH < 7.0 at birth is 3.7 of 1000, of which 51 of 297 (17.2\%) survived with neonatal neurologic morbidity, 45 of 276 (16.3\%) had seizures, and 24 of 407 (5.9\%) died during the neonatal period. The incidence of neonatal neurologic morbidity and mortality for term infants born with cord pH < 7.0 was 23.1\%. The incidence of hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy is 2.5 of 1000 live births. The proportion of cerebral palsy associated with intrapartum hypoxia-ischemia is 14.5\%. The vast majority of cases of cerebral palsy in nonanomalous term infants are not associated with intrapartum hypoxia-ischemia.
