Extremely Low Birth Weight (ELBW) Print E-mail

Dr. Kennedy Extremely low birth weight baby (ELBW) involves a baby born very prematurely weighing between 401 and 1000 grams (roughly 1-2 pounds) at birth. ELBW babies are at the lower limits of viability. If an ELBW baby survives, she or he is at elevated risk for neurological abnormalities, hearing and visual impairment, and developmental delay in infancy. The lower a baby's weight at birth, the more likely the child is to be subject to such problems.
