Chronic oxygen dependency (COD) is a common adverse outcome of very premature birth. It is, therefore, important to develop an accurate and simple predictive test to facilitate targeting of interventions to prevent COD. Our aim was to determine if a simple score based on respiratory support requirements predicted COD development.
