The journey for babies with bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) — also called chronic lung disease of infancy — can be long and complex. In this video, neonatologists and pulmonologists from the Newborn and Infant Chronic Lung Disease (NeoCLD) Program at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) explain what causes BPD in infants, bronchopulmonary dysplasia treatment options, care in the N/IICU, the benefits of tracheostomy surgery, the team required to manage chronic lung disease in neonates, long-term care, and the support services CHOP offers families. You'll also hear from a family whose child is a patient of the program. A comprehensive program like this is vital to the long-term survival of these most vulnerable patients.
