Answer

Redline and colleagues proposed a scoring system for placental examination that promotes consistency when pathologists judge the severity of chorioamnionitis. [200]

Several physiologic scores have also been proposed for neonates who have life-threatening illness, but a report by Lim et al could not conclude that these scores accurately predicted neonatal morbidity and mortality during infection. [201]
