Pretem infants saturations are kept at 91-95%. Higher levels (95-98%) have been trialed with no evidence of improvement in neurodevelopmental outcomes but worsening ROP outcomes. Lower levels of oxygen (85-89%) have been trialed in the SUPPORT and BOOST 2 studies but found increased mortality in the lower saturation group. 43 more words
The CRIB (Clinical Risk Index for Babies) score, and its update, CRIB II, were designed to predict mortality for infants born below 32/40.
They were based on specific criteria present in the first 12 hours of the infant’s life (to minimise treatment influences). 61 more words
