This Vermont Oxford Network study describes a new web-based tool for neonatal intensive care units to calculate composite morbidity and resource use.
This national, prospective, population-based cohort study found substantial survival improvement in survival and a reduction in severe morbidity for newborns born at 25 through 31 weeks’ gestation.
