Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia

Common Name(s)

Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia

Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia (BPD) is a chronic lung condition that affects newborn babies, specifically premature and low birth weight babies. Premature infants have fragile, often under developed, lungs that become irritated or injured easily and are in need of a breathing machine. Symptoms to look for in a baby include bluish skin (cyanosis), flaring of nostrils, rapid/shallow breathing, and grunting sounds. Infants with BPD are cared for in the NICU with oxygen therapy/ventilators and proper fluid and nutrient uptake for weeks to months in the hospital. Because these babies are at a greater risk for severe and repeated respiratory infections, it is important to take additional precautions such as limiting contact with those who may be infected by a respiratory virus and washing your hands before touching the baby.

Diagnostic value of chest CT combined with x-ray for premature infants with bronchopulmonary dysplasia.
 

Author(s): Ruifeng Li, Juan Zhang

Journal: Medicine (Baltimore). 2018 Mar;97(9):e9723.

 

Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) is a common chronic lung disease in the newborns. Staging of BPD severity does not have a high predictive value for the outcomes. This study was aimed to assess the diagnostic value of chest computed tomography (CT) combined with x-ray for premature ...

Ceramides in tracheal aspirates of preterm infants: Marker for bronchopulmonary dysplasia.
 

Author(s): Esther van Mastrigt, Salomé Zweekhorst, Bas Bol, Jeroen Tibboel, Joost van Rosmalen, Janneke N Samsom, André A Kroon, Johan C de Jongste, Irwin K M Reiss, Martin Post, Mariëlle W Pijnenburg

Journal:

 

In an experimental mouse model we showed that ceramides play a role in the pathogenesis of bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) and are a potential target for therapeutic intervention. We investigated whether ceramides are detectable in tracheal aspirates (TAs) of preterm infants and ...

Journal:

 

Probiotic supplementation reduces the risk of necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) and late-onset sepsis (LOS) in preterm infants, but it remains to be determined whether this reduction translates into a reduction of other complications. We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis ...
