Abstract Background: Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is a widely accepted method of respiratory support used in the care of preterm infants. It remains unknown as to what is the best strategy for the withdrawal of CPAP once it has been commenced. The aim of the present survey was to establish the current practices for withdrawal of nasal CPAP used by Australian neonatologists. A secondary aim was to establish what criteria clinicians use as an indicator for failure off CPAP.
