Introduction: The rate of preterm birth in 2015 was 9.63% in the United States, which includes a smaller subset of periviable pregnancies. These neonates have a wide range of morbidity and mortality resulting from severe prematurity.

Methods: We performed a descriptive study of neonates delivered at an academic hospital with a level IV NICU from 2011 to 2017. All neonates delivered at 22-25 6/7 weeks gestation were included. Subjects were identified using NICU and birth certificate databases.

Results: A total of 212 neonates were included. 21.7% did not have active resuscitation and 2.4% of neonates did not require intubation in the delivery room. Survival was 0% at 22 weeks, 47.5% at 23 weeks, 76.4% at 24 weeks and 88.1% at 25 weeks. (p
