Effects of continuous distending pressure on lung volumes and lung mechanics in the immediate neonatal period.

Abstract

The effects of CPAP and CNEP on lung mechanics and lung volumes were investigated in a group of 12 healthy newborn infants. Both resulted in a mild suppression of respiration. The fall in TPR50 was far greater during CPAP than during CNEP. Both led to a one third fall in dynamic compliance. Approximately 50% of the distending pressure was transmitted to the mediastinal structures whether applied as CPAP or CNEP.
