To identify maternal and neonatal factors associated with prematurity in the municipality of Porto Alegre. This was a population-based case-control study. The cases were newborns under 37 weeks of gestation and the controls were newborns over 37 weeks. The data came from the records of 19,457 births in the city of Porto Alegre in the year 2012 from the Information System on Live Births of the Municipal Health Department. The analysis was carried outand adjusted by a Logistic Regression according to a hierarchical model. The variables studied were allocated into three hierarchy levels: sociodemographic variables; reproductive history; and gestational and birth factors. There were 767 cases allocated and 1,534 controls in a design of a case for two controls (1:2) by simple randomization. In the final model, a statistically significant association was found for prematurity for the following variables: mother's age under 19 years old (OR=1.32; CI 95%: 1.02-1.71) or over 34 years old (OR=1.39; CI 95%: 1.12-1.72); inadequate maternal schooling for age (OR=2.11; CI 95%: 1.22-3.65); multiple pregnancies (OR=1.14; CI 95%: 1.01-1.29); C-section (OR=1.15; CI 95%: 1.03-1.29); birth weights under 2,500g (OR=4.04; CI 95%: 3.64-4.49); Apgar score at five minutes between zero and three (OR=1.47; CI 95%: 1.12-1.91); and inadequate prenatal care (OR=1.18; CI 95%: 1.02-1.36). The present study showed the most immediate consequence of prematurity for newborns by evidencing its association with worse Apgar scores and low birth weight. The following factors were also shown as possible more distal determinants of prematurity: mother's age; inadequate maternal education; multiple gestation; inadequate prenatal care; and C-section. Identificar fatores maternos e neonatais associados à prematuridade no município de Porto Alegre. Estudo do tipo caso-controle de base populacional. Os casos foram recém-nascidos com menos de 37 semanas de gestação, e os controles foram os recém-nascidos com 37 semanas ou mais. Os dados provieram dos registros de 19.457 nascimentos do município de Porto Alegre, no ano de 2012, no Sistema de Informações sobre Nascidos Vivos da Secretaria Municipal da Saúde. Foi realizada análise ajustada mediante Regressão Logística segundo modelo hierárquico. As variáveis estudadas foram alocadas em três níveis de hierarquia: variáveis sociodemográficas; história reprodutiva; fatores gestacionais e de nascimento. Foram alocados 767 casos e 1.534 controles, em um desenho de um caso para dois controles (1:2), mediante randomização simples. No modelo final, foi encontrada associação estatisticamente significante para prematuridade para as seguintes variáveis: idade materna menor que 19 anos (OR=1,32; IC 95%: 1,02 - 1,71) e maior que 34 anos (OR=1,39; IC 95%: 1,12 - 1,72); escolaridade materna inadequada para a idade (OR=2,11; IC 95%: 1,22 - 3,65); gravidez múltipla (OR=1,14; IC 95%: 1,01 - 1,29); cesariana (OR=1,15; IC 95%: 1,03 - 1,29); peso ao nascer menor a 2.500g (OR=4,04; IC 95%: 3,64 - 4,49); Índice de Apgar no 5° minuto de zero a três (OR=1,47; IC 95%: 1,12 - 1,91) e pré-natal inadequado (OR=1,18; IC 95%: 1,02 - 1,36). O presente estudo evidenciou as consequências mais imediatas da prematuridade para os recém-nascidos ao revelar sua associação com piores escores de Apgar e baixo peso ao nascimento. Mostrou como possíveis determinantes mais distais de prematuridade: idade materna, educação materna inadequada, gestação múltipla, pré-natal inadequado e realização de cesariana.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 3. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 12 March 2021.
All research outputs
of 22,955,959 outputs
Outputs from Revista da Escola de Enfermagem da USP
of 636 outputs
Outputs of similar age
of 339,568 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Revista da Escola de Enfermagem da USP
of 12 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 22,955,959 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 41st percentile – i.e., 41% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 636 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.1. This one has done well, scoring higher than 78% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 339,568 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 48th percentile – i.e., 48% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 12 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 50% of its contemporaries.
