Most common cause of death in neonates?? Lbw or prematurity?
Preterm birth (born before 37 weeks of pregnancy) and being small for gestational age, which are the reasons for low-birth-weight (LBW), are also important indirect causes of neonatal deaths. LBW contributes to 60% to 80% of all neonatal deaths. The global prevalence of LBW is 15.5%, which amounts to about 20 million LBW infants born each year, 96.5% of them in developing countries.
I think low birth …What if a pre term baby has a normal weight…And a term baby low weight?
LBW means leg before wicket or low birth weight?
Wow! I really hope you are joking.
prematurity…the doubt cuts off cause it says “lbw” not “elbw”
