Survival of infants with low birth weight and early gestational age, 1979 to 1981

Academic Article

Abstract

  • A chart for displaying neonatal survival data regarding low birth weight and early gestational age is presented. Survival data at two institutions for infants with low birth weight and early gestational age are compared. This format is useful for student and resident teaching, for counseling parents-to-be about potential outcomes, for consulting with out-of-hospital physicians who request advice about maternal-fetal transport, and most important, for helping to make the crucial decisions necessary during the management of labor and delivery of infants with low birth weight and early gestational age. © 1984.
