Chakraborty, Mallinath, McGreal, Eamon Patrick and Kotecha, Sailesh ORCID: 2010. Acute lung injury in preterm newborn infants: mechanisms and management. Paediatric Respiratory Reviews 11 (3) , pp. 162-170. 10.1016/j.prrv.2010.03.002

Respiratory morbidity and mortality remain common in preterm infants. The immature pretermlung is especially prone to injury. This process often starts in-utero due to maternal chorioamnionitis, priming the lung for further injury in response to post-natal ventilation, oxygen and nosocomial infection. Pulmonary inflammation has been strongly implicated in the pathway leading to lunginjury in this population of infants. Several therapeutic approaches have been attempted to prevent acutelunginjury or to limit its progress. The mechanisms of acutelunginjury in preterm infants; their clinical correlates and available therapeutic approaches are reviewed here.
