Abstract

All infants of 22–28 weeks gestation admitted to a neonatal intensive care unit in New South Wales (NSW) or the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) who survived to hospital discharge were enrolled in the follow-up clinic at their registration hospital. Table 137 shows the Health Area of mother’s residence at birth of the 2,327 infants who were born between 1/1/1998 and 31/12/2003. The majority of live born infants were admitted to a neonatal intensive care unit in all Health Areas.
