Neonatal mortality in infants born weighing 501 1000 grams the influence of changes in birth weight distribution and birth weight specific mortality rates on neonatal survival



Neonatal mortality in infants born weighing 501 1000 grams the influence of changes in birth weight distribution and birth weight specific mortality rates on neonatal survival



American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology 151(5): 608-611



Changes over time were analyzed in neonatal mortality rates for infants born weighing 501-1000 g. The decline in total mortality in this weight group due to improved small-group, birth weight-specific mortality was contrasted to the increase in mortality caused by changes in the birth weight distribution resulting from the care of smaller infants. Had the birth weight distribution remained unchanged, the total improvement in neonatal mortality for the entire 501-1000 g group would have been substantially greater.
