TABLE 2. Risk of perinatal distress and low Apgar score for two subgroups of intrauterine growth-retarded infants (crude and adjusted analysis for birth weight).
Rate ratios or odds ratios are calculated comparing the IUGR-low ponderal index group (N=432) with the IUGR-adequate ponderal index group (N=2030). They should be interpreted as increased risk of the low PI-IUGR over the API-IUGR group. No effect: odds ratio = 1.00.
