Delayed Response Associated with Poor Outcomes in L&D
In the U.S., NICU admission rates are increasing for newborns in all birth weight categories. The group of newborns experiencing the most significant increase in NICU admissions are the normal weight newborns (2,500 gm – 4,000g), who comprise 97% of all births.1 The root cause of many of these unexpected NICU admissions, have been attributed to delayed treatment of the at-risk mother and baby. There is a mounting demand for new tools to automate early detection of a patient’s worsening condition and a move from reactive care to more proactive and timely interventions in Labor & Delivery.
