Full-Term Neonatal Respiratory Distress and Chronic Lung Disease.

08:00 EDT 1st April 2019 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Full-Term Neonatal Respiratory Distress and Chronic Lung Disease."

Respiratory distress occurs in 5% to 7% of live births at term gestation. Most cases are mild and transient and can be attributed to transient tachypnea of the newborn or "wet lung." Severe respiratory distress is often due to nonpulmonary causes such as sepsis or congenital heart disease. Occasionally, term neonatal respiratory distress is associated with an inherited primary lung disease such as primary ciliary dyskinesia or surfactant metabolism defects. These lung diseases have characteristic presentations in the neonatal period and are important to recognize, as they necessitate different management approaches and have lifelong implications. Suspicion for these diseases should prompt referral to a pediatric pulmonologist. [Pediatr Ann. 2019;48(4):e175-e181.].

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A chronic lung disease developed after OXYGEN INHALATION THERAPY or mechanical ventilation (VENTILATION, MECHANICAL) usually occurring in certain premature infants (INFANT, PREMATURE) or newborn infants with respiratory distress syndrome (RESPIRATORY DISTRESS SYNDROME, NEWBORN). Histologically, it is characterized by the unusual abnormalities of the bronchioles, such as METAPLASIA, decrease in alveolar number, and formation of CYSTS.

A respiratory distress syndrome in newborn infants, usually premature infants with insufficient PULMONARY SURFACTANTS. The disease is characterized by the formation of a HYALINE-like membrane lining the terminal respiratory airspaces (PULMONARY ALVEOLI) and subsequent collapse of the lung (PULMONARY ATELECTASIS).

A syndrome characterized by progressive life-threatening RESPIRATORY INSUFFICIENCY in the absence of known LUNG DISEASES, usually following a systemic insult such as surgery or major TRAUMA.

A form of gram-negative meningitis that tends to occur in neonates, in association with anatomical abnormalities (which feature communication between the meninges and cutaneous structures) or as OPPORTUNISTIC INFECTIONS in association with IMMUNOLOGIC DEFICIENCY SYNDROMES. In premature neonates the clinical presentation may be limited to ANOREXIA; VOMITING; lethargy; or respiratory distress. Full-term infants may have as additional features FEVER; SEIZURES; and bulging of the anterior fontanelle. (From Menkes, Textbook of Child Neurology, 5th ed, pp398-400)

A species of PNEUMOVIRUS causing an important respiratory infection in cattle. Symptoms include fever, conjunctivitis, and respiratory distress.
