OBJECTIVES To document the effects of changing to a primarily nasal continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP)-based system of respiratory support on respiratory and non-respiratory outcomes in preterm infants. METHODOLOGY Outcomes in two groups of preterm infants with a birthweight of 1000-1499 g were compared retrospectively over a 5-year period before (period I; n = 57) and after (period II; n = 59) the introduction of a primarily nasal CPAP-based approach to respiratory support, modelled… CONTINUE READING
