Follow Up
Contacts were established with the families to collect information about the children's health and development, first from discharge to age 5, specifically at 2 months after discharge, at 9 months of age, 1 year, and 2, 3, and 4 years. Children were offered a complete health examination at the age of 5 years. It included a medical examination and an examination performed by a psychologist. Almost 80% of families participated in this follow-up. At 8 years, a questionnaire sent to the families allowed us to collect information about the child's schooling. A survey of district centers for people with disabilities enabled us to identify the children with a recognized disability and to obtain additional information. In addition an assessment at 16 years was done using a questionnaire and lung function testing.
