Medical Powerpoints, Pediatrics Notes
Infants and neonates subjected to mechanical ventillation for respiratory distress are prone to develop bronchopulmonary dysplasia. After a period of improvement, children present with signs of Respiratory Distress like requirement of supplemental oxygen and radiographic abnormalities beyond 30 days of age. Bronchopulmonary dysplasia occurs due to direct or indirect consquences of mechanical ventillation like oxygen toxicity, barotrauma and inflamation superimposed on a susceptible immature lung
Management of Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia:
Oxygen supplementation and ventillator requirement.
Post-natal steroid therapy.
Chronic intermittent diuretic therapy for pulmonary edema.
