Formatted Abstract/Summary
Preterm infants, especially the extremely preterm, require a large amount of support ex
utero
. They are often critically ill with greatly reduced chances of survival. Many die because
of their overall immaturity with multiple organ systems that cannot adjust to extrauterine
life, especially the lungs. Many die from their primary lung disease. The respiratory support
they get from positive pressure ventilation almost always causes significant secondary lung
injury. [Extract]
