Quality of survivals on conservative neonatal care.


:Quantity as well as quality of survivals determine the performance of a neonatal centre. Our centre has succeeded in improving survival with low cost technology without compromising the quality. Neurodevelopmental handicap was low on a 1-year follow-up. No baby had retinopathy of prematurity or hearing deficit. Dropout rate has been high although comprising of mainly full-term or near-term babies with mild perinatal asphyxia or mild respiratory distress or requiring instrumentation during delivery. Longer follow-up is desirable.
