Being Born at the Right Place

Mary Boyd, MD, FAAP,

President, WV Chapter

American Academy of Pediatrics


Risk Appropriate Perinatal Care

Healthy People 2020 Goals


Case Study

Story of a birth of twins


National Performance Measure #17

Percent of VLBW (<1500 gram) infants

delivered at

Level III Perinatal Facilities

(This has been measured for about 30 years)


GoalPerformance Measure #17:

90% of VLBW Babies Should be born at Level III Perinatal Facilities


Why 90%??!!


VLBW Mortality is Lower for Infants Born in a Level III Centers

Shown in multiple studies since 2004 including:

  • US

    • California, New York, Missouri, South Carolina, Missouri

  • Sweden – national registry

  • Finland – national registry

  • France - EPIPAGE


Preterm Delivery, Level of Care, and Infant Death in Sweden: A Population-Based Study

Stefan Johansson, MD*, ,Scott M. Montgomery, MD, PhD ,Anders Ekbom, MD, PhD ,Petra OtterbladOlausson, PhD||, Fredrik Granath, PhD ,Mikael Norman, MD, PhD*, Sven Cnattingius, MD, PhD

* Women and Child HealthMedical Epidemiology and BiostatisticsClinical Epidemiology Unit, KarolinskaInstitutet|| National Board of Health and Welfare, Stockholm, Sweden

Results. The rate of infant mortality increased from 5% amonginfants born at 31 weeks’ gestation to 56% among infantsborn at 24 weeks’ gestation. Compared with infants bornat university hospitals, the unadjusted odds ratio (OR) of infantdeath was 0.70 (95% confidence interval [CI]: 0.54–0.90)among infants delivered at general hospitals. However, afteradjustment, the OR of infant death shifted to 1.33 (95% CI:0.88–2.02) for preterm births at general hospitals. Thisshift was primarily due to different gestational age distributionsin regional and general hospitals. Among infants born at 24to 27 weeks’ gestation, infant mortality rates were 23%(87 deaths) in university hospitals and 32% (73 deaths) in generalhospitals.

Perinatal Regionalization for Very Low-Birth-Weight and Very Preterm Infants—A Meta-analysis,

JAMA 2010; 304.9: 992-1000


Results

VLBW and very preterm infants born outside of a level III hospital are at an increased likelihood of neonatal death or death prior to discharge from the hospital. 


The researchers identified 41 publications that met criteria to be included in the study. Analysis of the data of the VLBW studies (n = 37; 104,944 infants) indicated a 62 percent increase in odds of neonatal/predischarge death for infants born in non-level III hospitals compared with those born in level III hospitals (38 percent vs. 23 percent). When restricted to only higher-quality evidence (9 publications; 46,318 infants), a 60 percent increase in the odds of neonatal and/or predischarge mortality was estimated for VLBW infants born at non-level III hospitals (36 percent vs. 21 percent). Also, extremely low-birth-weight infants (1,000 grams [35 ounces] or less) born in non-level III hospitals had an estimated 80 percent increase in odds of neonatal and/or predischarge mortality compared with those born at level III hospitals (59 percent vs. 32 percent).


“These recent scientific findings indicate that more work must be done to better understand the impact of risk-appropriate care on babies born too little or too soon.  Our regionalized systems must be systematically evaluated to determine effective care of neonates and prevent infant death”.

Where should we go from here?


Where should we go from here?

  • WV leaders need to examine statistics more closely

  • Obstacles to maternal transport need to be studied.

  • A cost/benefit analysis of statewide maternal transport should be considered.

  • Quality Improvement Initiative


Lawyers are like other people--fools on the average; but it is easier for an ass to succeed in that trade than any other.-quoted in Sam Clemens of Hannibal, Dixon Wecter


Lawsuit in Iowa


Do we need a Quality Improvement Initiative?


Guidelines for Perinatal Care 2007 Quality Indicator:

Delivery of an infant less than 32 weeks gestation in an institution without a NICU

1Guidelines for Perinatal Care, 6th Edition, co-published and endorsed by the American Academy of Pediatrics

and American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. 2007


Some questions to ask

  • How long was the mother at the non-tertiary hospital before she gave birth to a baby weighing less than 1500 grams?

  • Was there an attempt to transport the mother?

  • If so what factors prevented her transport?


THIS is the best incubator


Being Born at the Right Place

Isn’t it worth the price because it’s the right thing to do?
