Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia

Common Name(s)

Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia

Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia (BPD) is a chronic lung condition that affects newborn babies, specifically premature and low birth weight babies. Premature infants have fragile, often under developed, lungs that become irritated or injured easily and are in need of a breathing machine. Symptoms to look for in a baby include bluish skin (cyanosis), flaring of nostrils, rapid/shallow breathing, and grunting sounds. Infants with BPD are cared for in the NICU with oxygen therapy/ventilators and proper fluid and nutrient uptake for weeks to months in the hospital. Because these babies are at a greater risk for severe and repeated respiratory infections, it is important to take additional precautions such as limiting contact with those who may be infected by a respiratory virus and washing your hands before touching the baby.

[Methods for establishing animal model of bronchopulmonary dysplasia and their evaluation].
 

Author(s): Zeng Xiong, Xia Zhou, Shao-Jie Yue

Journal: Zhongguo Dang Dai Er Ke Za Zhi. 2017 Jan;19(1):121-125.

 

With the development of treatment, the survival rate of premature infants has significantly increased, especially extremely premature infants and very low birth weight infants. This has led to an increase in incidence of bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) year by year. BPD has been ...
