Perinatal risk factors for bronchopulmonary dysplasia
in a national cohort of very-low-birth weight infants.
Rehospitalization in the first year of life among infants with bronchopulmonary dysplasia
A review of the Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia
products under development by companies and universities/research institutes based on information derived from company and industry-specific sources
Aberrant signaling pathways of the lung mesenchyme and their contributions to the pathogenesis of bronchopulmonary dysplasia
Management of infants with bronchopulmonary dysplasia
in North America.
Forty percent had a recognized syndrome or congenital anomaly, 37% had bronchopulmonary dysplasia
, 56% required a gastrostomy tube, 7% required a tracheostomy tube, 33% had cerebral palsy, and 72% were developmentally delayed.
Preterm infants with bronchopulmonary dysplasia
(BPD) had more central apneas, but fewer obstructive apneas in the prone, compared with supine position, however, there was little evidence of an interaction between the effect of sleep position and BPD status.
This statement by the AAP also provides a listing of applicable indications that include experienced ALTEs, infants with tracheotomies whose airways can be compromised, infants with neurological or metabolic disorders that alter respiratory control and infants with chronic lung disease such as bronchopulmonary dysplasia
(BPD) who require either oxygen, positive airway pressure therapy or mechanical ventilation.
Five of the six patients (83%) had significant coexisting medical diagnoses including dilated cardiomyopathy, morbid obesity in two cases, diabetes mellitus, bronchopulmonary dysplasia
, asthma, and cerebral palsy.

Infants with bronchopulmonary dysplasia
suckle with weak pressures to maintain breathing during feeding.
Discovery Labs is focused on diseases in which inflammation or endogenous surfactant degradation plays an integral part in development of respiratory lung diseases, such as Acute Lung Injury, Acute Respiratory Failure, Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia
, and Respiratory Distress Syndrome, Cystic Fibrosis, Asthma, and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder.
(chronic lung disease of infancy): an update for the pediatrician.
The differential diagnosis of wheezing in a young child includes: gastro-oesophageal reflux, cystic fibrosis, aspiration, immune deficiency, TB, bronchopulmonary dysplasia
These newborns had a higher incidence of neonatal systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS), higher incidence of bronchopulmonary dysplasia
(BPD), higher serum concentrations of interleukin (IL)-6 and more evidence of placental inflammation than those with negative cultures.
