Abstract:
This is the third report of the national clinical audit on perinatal mortality in Ireland using the NPEC data collection tool and classification system. Anonymised data were reported by the 20 Irish maternity units on a total of 500 perinatal deaths occurring in 2013 arising from 69,146 births of at least 500g birthweight or at least 24 weeks gestation. Stillbirths, early neonatal and late neonatal deaths accounted for 301 (60.2%), 162 (32.4%) and 37 (7.4%) of the 500 deaths, respectively. The perinatal mortality rate was 6.7 per 1,000 births in 2013; corrected for congenital malformation, the rate was 4.4 per 1,000 births; the stillbirth rate was 4.4 per 1,000 births; and, the early neonatal death rate was 2.4 per 1,000 live births.
