Neonatal Respiratory Therapy

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Close monitoring of blood gases and respiratory status is key in assessing the clinical course and the adequacy of the respiratory support in neonates with respiratory failure. This is important to assure the best possible outcome and in particular, to avoid some of the frequent complications associated with respiratory support. This is most critical in neonates born at lower gestational ages where the rate of complications is higher. In this chapter we discuss the most common methods used for neonatal monitoring and for invasive and noninvasive respiratory support. We also describe some of the newer strategies to reduce complications and improve the outcomes of neonates with respiratory failure.
