Mortality rate of preterm neonates in two teaching hospitals in Teheran, Islamic Republic of Iran
AbstractIn a retrospective study conducted in two teaching hospitals in Teheran, records of 573 preterm infants were reviewed. The birth weights ranged between 500 and 2500 grams, and the gestational ages between 24 and 36 weeks. This study indicated that the expected survival rate of neonates was greatly influenced by a gestational age of more than 32 weeks and a birth weight exceeding 1250 grams. The youngest surviving neonate was a female whose gestational age was 26-27 weeks and birth weight 1500 grams. The smallest surviving [in weight] was a female infant of 750 grams and a gestational age of 28-29 weeks. This study revealed that an increase in the age and weight of preterm neonates leads to a rapid decline in mortality rate

Regional Committee for Africa, 58 (AFR/RC58/PD/1, 2011-06-13)1. The WHO, UNICEF, UNFPA and World Bank maternal mortality estimates for 2005 revealed that more than half of the maternal deaths worldwide (270 000 out of 536 000) occur in sub-Saharan Africa. In the same region, newborn mortality is the highest in the world, estimated at 45 deaths per 1000 live births. The decline of maternal mortality between 1990 and 2005 in sub-Saharan Africa was only 0.1% per year. In order to contribute to the reduction of maternal mortality towards achieving Millennium Development Goal number 5 there is need for a ...
