Abstract

Aging societies are developing around the world while the number of newborns is decreasing. The best neonatal care is a crucial issue since prematurity is surging along with high mortality and morbidity in developing countries. However, the basic areas of evidence-based practice in neonatal care still have limited information because both the shortand long-term outcomes of this fragile population need to be considered. Sophisticated neonatal care is a new topic for improvement of survival and long-term neurodevelopmental outcomes. Randomized controlled trials and metaanalyses in neonatal care were reviewed and the local epidemiology was integrated to implement evidence-based neonatal care.
