Abstract

We evaluated the use of inhaled nitric oxide in eight premature infants (520 to 1440 gm, 24 to 31 weeks of gestation) who failed to respond to conventional management and who had prolonged rupture of the membranes and oligohydramnios. All infants had a significant improvement in oxygenation and a fall in mean airway pressure with inhaled nitric oxide. Further studies are required to determine the safety and efficacy of this form of therapy.
