Diaphragmatic Hernia Survival Probability Calculator

**It is not appropriate to use this calculator to estimate survival probability for an individual infant.**

Use this calculator to estimate the long-term survival probability for diaphragmatic hernia.

Simply input the child's birth weight (in kg) and his or her 5 minute Apgar score.

Survival Probability = 1 - 1/(1 + e

W is birth weight in kg, and A is 5 minute Apgar.

This formula was developed and validated by The Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Study Group J Ped Surg 2001;36:141-5.

The abstract is available at the Journal of Pediatric Surgery website.
