DESCRIPTION
On the surface infants born at 34 to 36 6/7 weeks gestation may look like a full-term infant and may even “act” like a term infant; however, they are at considerable risk for prematurity-related complications and have an escalated risk of mortality, morbidity, and hospital readmissions during the first month of life. Review current clinical challenges and guidelines for the safe and appropriate management and care of late premature infants.
