    Secretory phospholipase A2 hydrolyzes phosphoglycerides and it has been shown to be involved in alveolar inflammation and surfactant degradation. It plays an important role in acute lung injury but it has never been studied in newborn infants. We were aimed to investigate the phospholipase A2...

    A definition of the term "intermittent positive pressure ventilation (IPPV)" is presented. It refers to a form of mechanical ventilation in which air is delivered into a person's lungs under pressure and in short bursts, to simulate intakes of breath. Inserting a tube into a lung may be done to...
