News on neonatal respiratory research

Carlo Dani


We aimed to assess some of the most recent advances in the pulmonary neonatal medicine. For this purpose we reported on the role of the sustained lung inflation (SLI) procedure in the delivery room, the development of new exogenous surfactant preparations, the effectiveness of nasal high frequency ventilation (nHFV), and the treatment of patent ductusarteriosus (PDA) with paracetamol. Moreover, we discussed the possible future role of nanomedicine and stem cells in the treatment of BPD.
