A cesarean section is a surgical procedure that involves making a cut in a pregnant woman's abdominal wall and uterus in order to deliver her baby when a natural birth is not possible. Cesarean sections are critical procedures that can lead to a number of complications such as wound infections. These complications can lead to harmful physical and psychological effects to women's health if not treated properly. For example, cesarean section wound infections could impose serious complications that can delay the wound healing and recovery processes.
Consequently, these complications can have negative economic impacts on the healthcare system. Knowing and identifying the symptoms and risk factors is critical for healthcare providers to provide adequate care to their patients. In this project, I will discuss wound infections, also known as Surgical Site Infections (SSIs), as one of the complications that follow cesarean sections. I will focus on identifying the characteristics of women who get an infection from cesarean section surgery: is it related to age, preexisting conditions, or other demographic variables?
