Efficacy and Tolerance of High Flow Nasal Cannula for Respiratory Distress Syndrom in Late Preterms (34-36 Weeks)

The main objective of the study is to gather preliminary data on the effectiveness of High Flow Nasal canula (HFNC), provided since the delivery room, for ventilatory support in newborns o...

Physiological Changes With High-Flow Nasal Cannula

To measure changes in physiologic parameters in extremely low birthweight (ELBW) infants on high-flow nasal cannula compared to nasal continuous positive airway pressure (nCPAP).

Humidified High Flow Nasal Cannula Versus Nasal Intermittent Positive Ventilation in Neonates

The investigators hypothesize that the Humidified High Flow Nasal Cannula(HHFNC) is effective and safe as primary respiratory support in neonate with respiratory distress syndrome(RDS). It...

High Flow Nasal Cannula versus Nasal Continuous Positive Airway Pressure for Primary Respiratory Support in Preterm Infants: A Prospective Randomized Study.

 This study compares high flow nasal cannula (HFNC) with nasal continuous positive airway pressure (nCPAP) within the first hour of life as the primary respiratory support in neonates of ≤32 wee...

Approaches to Noninvasive Respiratory Support in Preterm Infants: From CPAP to NAVA.

Endotracheal intubation and invasive mechanical ventilation have been mainstays in respiratory care of neonates with respiratory distress syndrome. Together with antenatal steroids and surfactant, thi...

Ventilation strategies in transition from neonatal respiratory distress to chronic lung disease.

Despite the advance in neonatal care over the past few decades, preventing preterm infants with respiratory distress syndrome progress to bronchopulmonary dysplasia remained challenging. In this revie...

Peptidomics analysis of umbilical cord blood reveals potential preclinical biomarkers for neonatal respiratory distress syndrome.

The purpose of this study was to investigate the pathophysiology and discover novel predictors of neonatal respiratory distress syndrome (NRDS) from a peptidomics perspective.

Efficacy and safety of high-flow nasal cannula oxygen therapy in moderate acute hypercapnic respiratory failure.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The proximal portion of the respiratory passages on either side of the NASAL SEPTUM. Nasal cavities, extending from the nares to the NASOPHARYNX, are lined with ciliated NASAL MUCOSA.

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

Rare congenital metabolism disorders of the urea cycle. The disorders are due to mutations that result in complete (neonatal onset) or partial (childhood or adult onset) inactivity of an enzyme, involved in the urea cycle. Neonatal onset results in clinical features that include irritability, vomiting, lethargy, seizures, NEONATAL HYPOTONIA; RESPIRATORY ALKALOSIS; HYPERAMMONEMIA; coma, and death. Survivors of the neonatal onset and childhood/adult onset disorders share common risks for ENCEPHALOPATHIES, METABOLIC, INBORN; and RESPIRATORY ALKALOSIS due to HYPERAMMONEMIA.

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 disorder of neuromuscular transmission that occurs in a minority of newborns born to women with myasthenia gravis. Clinical features are usually present at birth or develop in the first 3 days of life and consist of hypotonia and impaired respiratory, suck, and swallowing abilities. This condition is associated with the passive transfer of acetylcholine receptor antibodies through the placenta. In the majority of infants the myasthenic weakness resolves (i.e., transient neonatal myasthenia gravis) although this disorder may rarely continue beyond the neonatal period (i.e., persistent neonatal myasthenia gravis). (From Menkes, Textbook of Child Neurology, 5th ed, p823; Neurology 1997 Jan;48(1):50-4)
