PART IV Additional Causes of Neonatal Mortality and Morbidity Summary of Findings: The Problem of Low Birth Weight Although reliable data on the magnitude and global distribution of low birth weight (LBW) are limited, it is estimated that approximately 16 percent of all neonates in developing countries weigh less than 2, grams at birth and Author: Judith R. Bale, Barbara J. Stoll, Adetokunbo O. Lucas. Background: Although preterm birth neonatal morbidity and mortality in the United States, the majority of data regarding preterm neonatal outcomes come from older studies, and many reports have been limited to only very preterm neonates. Delineation of neonatal outcomes by delivery gestational age is needed to further clarify the continuum of Cited by: Reducing neonatal mortality is a crucial step for the Millennium Development Goal (MDG-4) to be achieved with neonatal mortality represents over 40% of infant mortality and one quarter of under-five mortality. This study was designed retrospectively to determine the predictors of neonatal morbidity and mortality in tertiary hospital inCited by: 4. Reducing neonatal mortality and morbidity often involves established interventions or strategies along with the means to make them effective in each setting. For many conditions, improved education and behavioral change among women, families, and health care providers would have a .

With advances in perinatal and neonatal care, more infants are surviving at earlier gestational ages. 1 ⇓ – 3 However, the rates of mortality and severe neonatal morbidity increase with decreasing gestational age. 4 ⇓ – 6 This trend is consistent across studies, but the absolute rates of mortality and morbidity vary most markedly for those infants born at the earliest gestational weeks. Neonatal death rate per live births in South Asia Perinatal mortality by region , and Infant mortality rates reported in Sri Lanka () District disparities in neonatal mortality and post-neonatal mortality Percentage distribution of deaths up to one year of age (). The first 28 days of life – the neonatal period – is the most vulnerable time for a child’s survival. Children face the highest risk of dying in their first month of life at an average global rate of 17 deaths per 1, live births in , down by 52 per cent from 38 deaths per 1, in In comparison, the probability of dying after the first month and before reaching age 1 was. Research about neonatal outcomes among late preterm infants (34 weeks through 36 6/7 weeks of gestation) is limited. Understanding which late preterm infants are at risk for neonatal morbidity or mortality is necessary to improve health outcomes and reduce hospital costs. We conducted a .

One reason for this is the fact that the relative percentage of neonatal mortality rate (NMR) to undermortality rate has risen. Between and , the worldwide undermortality rate declined by 47%, whereas NMR only decreased by 37%. The proportion of neonatal deaths to underdeaths increased from 37% to 44% [ 3].   Neonatal mortality is still high in developing countries though most of the causes of neonatal mortality are preventable9. The aim of our study was to determine the major causes of mortality and morbidity in neonates admitted to our unit from Malir and surrounding areas. Neonatal morbidity and mortality are major global public health challenges. There are surprisingly few data on neonatal morbidity and mortality from t. Morbidity and mortality measures can be gathered using either descriptive or analytic epidemiology and can undergo stratification into various subcategories, such as perinatal, neonatal, infant, and maternal morbidity mortalities, to name a few.
