Acronym EPT RECAP
Name A comparative analysis of extremely preterm birth cohorts in Europe participating in the RECAP consortium

Population

EPT RECAP Population

Data from all births occurring between 22 and 26 completed weeks of gestation will be used. These will be analysed using four main populations: * All births – including live births, still births and terminations of pregnancy; * Fetuses alive at maternal admission to hospital and the onset of labour-monitoring (or the point at which a decision was made to perform Caesarean section). * Live births. * Babies admitted into neonatal intensive care. Consideration will be given to examining the populations excluding fetuses with life-threatening congenital anomalies. Exclusion of babies known to have serious congenital infections (e.g. rubella, cytomegalovirus) will also be considered.
