Abstract

Improved survival of preterm ventilated infants has resulted in an increase in the incidence of bronchopulmonary dysplasia, particularly in very tiny infants. In this article, the authors have reviewed the current literature on the pulmonary function and long-term neurodevelopmental outcome of VLBW infants to determine the true morbidity of respiratory disease in the neonatal period.
