nCPAP for Infants Part 2: Overview of nCPAP Delivery Systems webcast


Description

Respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) remains a common diagnosis for premature infants. For those premature infants requiring additional respiratory support, neonatal continuous positive airway pressure (nCPAP) has been shown to be an effective method for improving functional residual capacity (FRC) and oxygenation.1,2 nCPAP is a recognized treatment in helping prevent alveolar collapse and decreasing intrapulmonary shunt that employs various types of nCPAP devices and interfaces.1,2,3 When compared to conventional ventilation, nCPAP may reduce incidence of ventilator-induced injury and chronic lung disease in infants—demonstrated by favorable small airway function as well as decreased mortality.4,5
