Chronic Lung Disease Research Articles
Since its establishment in 2010, the Newborn and Infant Chronic Lung Disease Program at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia has treated over 400 newborns, and is one of the largest programs dedicated to the care of infants with chronic lung disease in the world. You can also find more CHOP Neonatology research on CHOP's research institute website.
One of the first of its kind in the world, the CHOP Neonatology chronic lung disease program was designed to be a clinical and research home for infants with BPD receiving neonatal intensive care throughout the surrounding region and nation at large.
A patient was able to be weaned off mechanical ventilation for the first time of his life just 16 days after a lobectomy at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
This case study illustrates how infants with severe chronic lung disease can make great improvements with multidisciplinary, individualized care.
Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD), a chronic lung disease of infancy, is among the most common and consequential complications associated with very preterm birth.
For extremely preterm infants requiring resuscitation at birth, a ventilation strategy involving two sustained inflations, compared with standard intermittent positive pressure ventilation, did not reduce the risk of BPD or death at 36 weeks postmenstrual age.
