Comparing international survival rates of extremely preterm infants: the impact of variation in reporting signs of life

Lucy K. Smith


There is wide international variation in reported survival rates of extremely preterm infants. However, some of this variation might be related to local differences in decisions about whether a baby born at the threshold of survival is considered to be live-born and consequently whether the death is reported as a stillbirth or neonatal death. This variation results in biased comparisons of survival rates.
