Clin Exp Pediatr. 1998;41(9):1188-1197.   Published online September 15, 1998
Purpose : To evaluate the association between neonatal mortality and the initial response to surfactant replacement therapy, and to examine the correlation between the response type and other prognostic factors. Methods : Sixty-seven neonates with respiratory distress syndrome(RDS) were divided into two groups; group I(n=51) who survived and group II(n=16) who died within the first 28 days of life after one...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 1982;25(6):584-592.   Published online June 30, 1982
The purpose of this study is to estimate early neonatal mortality rate in relation to obstetric factors. The early neonatal mortality rate was estimated on live births with a gestational period more than 28 weeks who died during the first 7 days of life in Ewha Womans University Hospital fro-m Jan. 1974 to Dec. 1978. During this period, there were...

Mee Kyung Park, Choong Hee Kim, Seung Joo Lee, Keun Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1981;24(10):920-927.   Published online October 15, 1981
In 8218 newborns who were born in Ewha Womans University Hospital during the period from January, 1974 to December, 1978, the authors investigated the mortality rate within 7 days after birth and studied the factors associated with it. The results are as follows; 1. The early neonatal mortality rate was, in average, 15.5 among 1000 live newborns. 2. The mortality...
