Ten newborns were included in the study: term (>37 weeks' gestation) and preterm (28-36 weeks' gestation) neonates who required endotracheal intubation for mechanical ventilation for more than 7 days and diagnosis of failure of ventilation treatment (3), with signs and symptoms of neonatal respiratory distress syndrome (RDS), in whom bronchopulmonary dysplasia
(BPD) was diagnosed subsequently (n = 5) or not (n = 5).
However, he continued to require CPAP and supplemental oxygen through 36-week corrected gestational age (CGA), consistent with a diagnosis of bronchopulmonary dysplasia

The study indicated clinically relevant effects in secondary endpoints associated to severe bronchopulmonary dysplasia
and severe intraventricular hemorrhage.
(6,7) Among these issues is chronic lung disease or bronchopulmonary dysplasia
(BPD), defined as requiring oxygen at 36 weeks' gestational age.
ARA and DHA deficiencies have been linked to the development of bronchopulmonary dysplasia
and retinopathy of prematurity.
In terms of neonatal morbidities such as respiratory distress syndrome, intraventricular hemorrhage, bronchopulmonary dysplasia
, patent ductus arteriosus, and necrotizing enterocolitis, no differences were detected between the groups.
Among the survivors, the researchers saw an increase in the rate of bronchopulmonary dysplasia
, a complication often resulting from respiratory therapy.
There is a high risk of serious RSV illness in infants who were born prematurely or who have bronchopulmonary dysplasia
(BPD), congenital heart disease (CHD), congenital abnormalities of the airway or neuromuscular disease, or certain immunodeficiencies.
Bhandari's clinical research interests include bronchopulmonary dysplasia
, noninvasive ventilation and sepsis in neonates.
