SNAP

A measure of the severity of illness in newborns in neonatal intensive care that assigns risk points to the mean blood pressure, lowest body temperature, ratio of the oxygen saturation to the FIO2, serum pH, urinary output, presence of multiple seizures, size for gestational age, birth weight, and Apgar scores to gauge the likelihood of morbidity and mortality. A variation of this risk assessment tool is the Score for Neonatal Acute Physiology with Perinatal Extension (SNAPPE).
