NICHD Neonatal Research Network: Extremely Preterm Birth Outcome Data
This Web- based tool is designed to help better inform health care professionals and families about possible infant outcomes (EGA 22-25 wks) based on standardized assessment. The tool uses study data to calculate an infant's probability of health survival. These data are not intended to be predictive of individual infant outcomes. Instead, the data provide a range of possible outcomes based on specific characteristics.
