This section gives a brief overview of exposure assessment and current outcome definitions in neonatology. Although the comparison of exposure and outcome data is a cornerstone of modern neonatology, patient-focused outcome definitions which were defined by the United States Food and Drug Administration as "how a patient feels, functions or survives" are scarce in neonatal outcome assessment. In contrast to this remarkable lack of sufficient outcome assessment tools for neonates, a vast amount of exposure data was collected in recent years.
