To diagnose and treat the problems of the preterm neonates 4. To evaluate the parameters measured by the monitors 5. To evaluate the results of the main laboratory tests (whole blood count, hematocrit, hemoglobin, platelets, CRP, blood gases, biochemical tests) 6. To perform the long-term follow up of the high risk neonates and recognize the long-tern consequences of the neonatal problems
