Severity of illness in neonates and mortality has various scoring system, which have been validated in different neonatal set-ups. The Score for Neonatal Acute Physiology (SNAP) was developed in 1993 for babies of all birth weights and validated as a predictor of mortality1. It is a physiologybased score that uses 34 routinely available vital signs and laboratory test results. It’s perinatal extension, Score of Neonatal Acute Physiology Perinatal Extension (SNAPPE) was validated in US set up2. The Clinical Risk for Babies score (CRIB) was developed for babies <1500 g, consists of 3 physiologic variables plus birth weight, gestational age, and congenital anomalies3. CRIB-II is calculated from five items: sex, birth weight, gestation age, worst base excess and temperature at admission4. SNAP was cumbersome to use because of the number and complexity of items1.
