Feburary 2018: Outcomes of infants with a birthweight less than or equal to 500 g in Northern England: 15 years’ experience
Jenna Gillone et al evaluated the mortality and short-term neonatal morbidity of babies born ≤500 g cared for in North East England and North Cumbria between 1998 and 2012. They identified 104 live-born babies ≥22 weeks gestation and ≤500 g (birth prevalence 0.22/1000), of which 49 were admitted for intensive care. Overall one-year survival was 11%, but survival for those receiving intensive care was 22%. There was significant short-term neonatal morbidity in survivors, in particular retinopathy of prematurity and chronic lung disease. The authors conclude that survival of babies born weighing ≤500 g in this cohort remains poor despite advances in neonatal care, with considerable short-term neonatal morbidity in survivors. This could be due to a combination of attitudes and a rather conservative approach towards resuscitation and intensive care, and the intrinsic nature of these tiny babies.
