Comparison of NIV-NAVA and NCPAP in facilitating extubation for very preterm infants

Various types of noninvasive respiratory modalities that lead to successful extubation in preterm infants have been explored. The study aimed to compare noninvasive neurally adjusted ventilatory assist (NIV-NAVA) and nasal continuous positive airway pressure (NCPAP) for the postextubation stabilization of … Continue reading

Temperature and Humidity Associated With Artificial Ventilation in the Premature Infant: An Integrative Review of the Literature

Approximately half of the 55,000 very low birth-weight infants (<1500 g) born in the United States each year develop bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD). Many etiologies have been associated with the development of BPD, including aberrant temperature/humidity levels of artificial ventilation. This … Continue reading
