In this study, 2 optimality scales and 3 complication scales were used to obtain perinatal risk scores for 103 infants. The scores generated by the 5 scales were compared for accuracy in predicting a variety of traditional and frequently used neonatal and infant outcome measures. The results were interpreted as showing an advantage in favor of the 3 complication scales in the number and variety of outcome measures that could be predicted from the scale scores.
