Preterm infants who are symptomatic at follow-up frequently have a high airways resistance (RAW) and a low functional residual capacity to thoracic gas volume ratio (FRC:TGV). The aim of this study was to assess the effect of bronchodilator therapy on these lung function abnormalities. Thirty-four infants who had recurrent respiratory symptoms and a median gestational age 28 weeks, were studied at a median postnatal age of 10 months (range 6-20). TGV and RAW were measured using a… CONTINUE READING
