Excerpt

Assessment of a sick neonate at birth, at the triage area in the health facility, and during admission is critical to assessing the severity of the illness, planning the management, and also prognosticating for the family. These scoring tools include the clinical risk index for babies (CRIB), the score for neonatal acute physiology (SNAP, SNAP-II), the extended sick neonatal score (ESNS), and the modified sick neonatal score (MSNS), etc. and have included data regarding birth weight, gestation, admission temperature, perfusion, arterial blood gas analysis, and blood sugar estimation [13]. These tools quantify the physiologic aspects of the illness and, therefore, can be used as predictors of mortality and increased morbidity. …
