Viability Improving

There’s very good news from researchers at the University of Rochester Medical Center.  At several medical centers they analyzed the survival rate of babies born very prematurely at twenty-two and twenty-three weeks.  The research spanned a recent five-year time period.  They then compared it with the survival rate for the previous five years and the results are impressive.  The chance for a baby to survive when born at twenty-two weeks went from a low seven percent to nearly a third of all babies surviving.  Babies born a week later improved from thirty-two percent to over half surviving.  The study attributes this success to the medical centers taking best-practices, applying them, and then sharing them nationally.  Good news for parents and it showcases fetal development.
