Methods of assessment and findings regarding pulmonary function in infants less than 1000 grams.

Abstract

Information regarding lung mechanics and pulmonary function may be used to influence the selection of tiny infant ventilator settings and thus minimize the risk for lung injury during mechanical ventilation. Data regarding compliance and resistance are presented in comparison to various ventilator settings.
