Intratracheal lipopolysaccharide (LPS) causes acute inflammation and injurious mechanical ventilation results in pulmonary and systemic inflammation. We aimed to determine in preterm lungs if continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) protects against pulmonary and systemic inflammation, compared with conventional mechanical ventilation (CMV) after… CONTINUE READING
