Ventilatory Strategies in Infants with Established Severe Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia: A Multicenter Point Prevalence Study.
We performed a point prevalence study on infants with severe bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD), collecting data on type and settings of ventilatory support; 187 infants, 51% of whom were on invasive positive-pressure ventilation (IPPV), from 15 centers were included. We found a significant center-specific variation in ventilator modes.
