Serum albumin and mortality in very low birth weight infants


Serum albumin is a predictor of outcome in adults but its role in paediatric patients is unclear.

However, the lowest serum albumin had a statistically significant inverse correlation with mortality and potentially plays a prognostic role in VLBW neonates.
