Early nasal continuous positive airway pressure (ENCPAP) is an attempt to avoid intubation and may minimize lung injury. In contrast, ENCPAP can fail, and at that time surfactant rescue can be less effective. OBJECTIVE To compare the pulmonary clinical course and outcome of very preterm infants (gestational age 25-32 weeks) with respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) who started with ENCPAP… CONTINUE READING
