OBJECTIVE To determine whether infants with hyaline membrane disease (HMD) superimposed on immature lung disease (ILD) have more abnormal lung function and respiratory drive during the evolution of chronic neonatal lung disease (CNLD) in extremely low birth weight infants (ELBW; <1000 g). METHODS We measured lung mechanics (respiratory frequency, tidal volume, minute ventilation, lung resistance, lung compliance, lung impedance, and work of breathing per minute) and respiratory drive (airway… CONTINUE READING
