Abstract:There are differences in neonatal mortality rates among NICUs that cannot be explained by differences in the measured admission characteristics of the infants, suggesting that the effectiveness of medical care varies among units. Neither the annual volume of very low birth weight infants treated in a unit nor the presence of a pediatric residency training program was independently associated with neonatal mortality rates for very low birth weight infants.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
