Table 4 Preliminary results for the NAME categorical score (Kendall’s τ correlation and ordinal logistic regression)

From: The neonatal assessment manual score (NAME) for improving the clinical management of infants: a perspective validity study

  Kendall’s τ (CI 95%) p-value OR (CI 95%) p-value
Gestational agea 0.38 (0.20, 0.53) 0.002 1.30 (1.10, 1.57) 0.004

Post-menstrual age at assessmenta 0.28 (0.10, 0.45) 0.018 1.24 (1.04, 1.52) 0.023
Weight at assessmentb 0.31 (0.13, 0.47) 0.006 1.11 (1.03, 1.21) 0.010

  1. a Gestational age and age at assessment were measured in weeks
  2. b Birth weight and weight at assessment were measured in hectograms
  3. c Complexity index was calculated as the number of complications (e.g., surgery, intrauterine growth restriction) and organs/systems affected by pathologies
