Epidemiologic identification of infants with low birth weight in urban areas of Latin America:: II A simplified risk score for early prenatal
MetadataShow full item record
A simple, empirically derived instrument is needed in developing countries to identify mothers at risk of delivering low birth weight (LBW) infants, in order to help reduce the incidence of LBW deliveries and provide mothers at high risk with appropriate health care. The study reported here was devoted to developing an instrument of this kind using data obtained before the twenty-sixth week of gestation from an urban study population of 17,135 Guatemalan women. It appears that this instrument could be appropriately applied to urban populations in other developing countries
