Abstract
This is the 8th annual report of the Australian and New Zealand Neonatal Network and presents information on the network's 2002 annual audit of high risk neonates. All level III NICUs in Australia and New Zealand participate in the network's quality assurance measure. In 2002, there were 7045 babies born who met the criteria for the Australian and New Zealand Neonatal Network’s (ANZNN) high-risk audit and were admitted to one of the 28 level III neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) throughout Australia and New Zealand. Of these babies, 3281 were born at less than 32 completed weeks gestation (and 2803 were born weighing less than 1500 grams. Intermittent positive pressure ventilation (IPPV) and / or continuous positive airways pressure (CPAP) was given to 6309 babies and 863 had major surgery. The ANZNN level III cohort now represents 2.30% of the 305009 live births in the two countries (Australian Bureau of Statistics, 2003; Statistics New Zealand, 2003).
