    Lung hypoplasia (LH) is a common neonatal problem resulting from small, structurally immature lungs. LH is a graded condition which, if severe, is life threatening due to impairment of ventilation, pulmonary blood flow and gas exchange. Although the effects of LH on the structure of lung...

    Preterm birth occurs in 11% of live births globally and accounts for 35% of all newborn deaths. Preterm newborns have immature immune systems, with reduced innate and adaptive immunity; their immune systems may be further compromised by various factors associated with preterm birth. The immune...

    Abstract Fluid overload worsens respiratory failure; conversely, fluid restriction has been associated with a higher survival rate without chronic lung disease. We therefore hypothesised that fluid restriction in the perinatal period might improve lung function in ventilated, prematurely born...
