Washington: Premature babies have greater chances of surviving in high-level neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) than in general hospitals, and this benefit is considerably larger than previously reported.The likelihood that an extremely premature baby will survive if born in a high-technology, high-volume hospital unit was already known, but the current study, the largest to date, revealed a stronger effect."Prior studies from the early 1990s found increased survival rates of 30 to 50 percent among preterm infants delivered at high-level NICUs, compared to preterm infants delivered elsewhere," said study leader Scott A. Lorch, neonatologist at The Children`s Hospital of Philadelphia.
