Chronic Lung Disease Research Articles
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.
