abstract

  • Infants born very preterm have a variable baseline risk of bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD). Using the example of evidence-based drug therapies to prevent BPD, we designed a visual aid that displays the "number needed to treat" with CIs for caffeine, vitamin A, and hydrocortisone over a range of baseline risks.
