Abstract

Premature infants show a characteristic respiratory instability that is reflected in fluctuations in ventilation and gas exchange. Adapting the respiratory support on a continuous basis to the infant's needs is challenging and not always effective. Automatic modes of respiratory support have been developed to address these limitations. This article describes some of these automatic modes of respiratory support and provides a discussion on the state of the evidence.
