Chronic lung disease (CLD) of prematurity may be caused by a number of insults during mechanical ventilation, including barotrauma and hyperoxia. To evaluate bronchial hyperresponsiveness (BHR) in infants with CLD of prematurity, we measured changes in transcutaneous oxygen tensions (tcPO2) during methacholine inhalation challenge. Twelve infants with CLD and 22 age-matched children without respiratory diseases were enrolled in this study (ages--5 to 36 months; mean age--16.2 months). Serial… CONTINUE READING
