Preterm birth is associated with the disruption of normal lung development and chronic lung disease. There are early life factors that predispose a preterm infant to Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia (BPD); including initiation of positive pressure ventilation and exposure to high oxygen concentrations. Less is known regarding the impact of post NICU factors that can affect lung health and development in individuals born premature. This talk will give an overview of early and late risk factors that influence lung health in children with BPD, examine long-term respiratory outcomes of children and young adults with BPD and discuss outpatient follow-up and guidelines to improve respiratory outcomes and quality of life.
- Identify risk factors associated with the development of BPD
- Identify risk factors associated with symptoms severity in children with BPD post NICU
- Understand the association between preterm birth and lung function trajectories during childhood and adult life
This seminar focuses on pulmonology and was delivered at a virtual event titled, “Long-term Pulmonary Outcomes of Children with Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia,” on November 11, 2021.
