The follow-up records of 605 infants with birth weights of less than 1,500 g, with data available for 2 years after birth, were examined for evidence of abnormal pulmonary signs or symptoms. A total of 119 infants were identified and the neonatal oxygen requirements of these infants were compared with those of 486 infants who had normal pulmonary function. A requirement for oxygen at 28 days of life had a positive predictive value for abnormal pulmonary findings at the time of follow-up of only… 
Prenatal predictors of chronic lung disease in very preterm infants
TLDR
These population based data show that the prenatal factors low gestational age, low birth weight for gestationalAge, and male sex significantly predict the development of chronic respiratory insufficiency in very preterm infants and may assist clinical decision about delivery.
Health and developmental outcomes at 18 months in very preterm infants with bronchopulmonary dysplasia.
TLDR
Children with BPD-2 are similar to the other groups at 18 months in growth, general health, and neurologic outcome but differ in having a higher number of days of rehospitalizations for respiratory causes, more hernia repairs, and more developmental delays.
Cardiopulmonary function in premature infants with bronchopulmonary dysplasia — a 2-year follow up
TLDR
Measurements of maximum flow at functional residual capacity as well as cardiac evaluation are essential elements in follow up of infants with severe BPD.
Development of airway function in infancy after preterm delivery.
TLDR
Airway function during the first year shows considerable tracking, even in the absence of neonatal respiratory disease, and preterm delivery is associated with altered airway development during early infancy.
Chronic lung disease in preterm neonates
TLDR
Ongoing basic and clinical research is required to identify perinatal and neonatal interventions that are effective in either preventing or treating chronic lung disease in preterm neonates.
Tidal Breathing Measurements at Discharge and Clinical Outcomes in Extremely Low Gestational Age Neonates
TLDR
Extremely premature infants receiving less than 1 L/min nasal cannula support at 21% to 100% fraction of inspired oxygen have tidal breathing measurements that differ from term infants, but these measurements do not differentiate those preterm infants who have BPD or will have respiratory disease in the first year of life from those who do not.
Evaluating "old" definitions for the "new" bronchopulmonary dysplasia.
TLDR
Poor pulmonary outcome and poor neurosensory outcome are common late adverse outcomes in this population of infants and BPD as defined by duration of oxygen therapy is a less accurate surrogate currently than in previous eras.
