We review information about how the preterm lung can be injured with the initiation of mechanical ventilation at birth. Although multiple variables such as pressure, tidal volume, positive end expiratory pressure, and the gas used for ventilation may contribute to the injury, the relative contribution of each is not known. Recent studies demonstrate that injury caused by initial high tidal volume is amplified by subsequent mechanical ventilation. A model for gas inflation of the fluid-filled… CONTINUE READING
