AB In order to predict which newborns will require advanced resuscitation (ANR), we developed an ANR risk calculator (calculator.) using a bootstrap sample size of 52 973 from a case–control study of newborns ≥34 weeks gestation. Multivariable logistic regression coefficients were obtained for the 10 original risk factors and two interaction terms. The area under the receiving-operating characteristic curve predicting ANR was 0.9243. ANR prediction is improved by accounting for perinatal variables, beyond factors known prenatally. Prospective validation of this model is warranted in a clinical setting.
