About this book

This book provides a comprehensive framework for treatment and management of bronchopulmonary dysplasia. In recent years great strides have been made toward understanding the pathogenesis and clinical aspects of BPD, which is the most common chronic lung disease affecting infants. This one-stop resource is written by leading scientists and clinicians in the field, and chapters discuss the most recent developments in the basic scientific, translational, and clinical characteristics of the disease. Topics such as hyperoxia, pre- and post-natal inflammation, and genetics and biomarkers of BPD are included, as well as non-invasive ventilation techniques, nutrition, and radiology applications from pre-term birth to adulthood. The book closes with an in-depth look at emerging therapeutic options for prevention of BPD. Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia is an essential volume for all neonatologists, pediatric pulmonologists, and scientists interested in developmental disorders of the lung.

“This book truly represents an international endeavor and a notable contribution to the subject of lung development gone awry from prematurity and prenatal/ postnatal influences. … chapters are well written, superbly referenced, and yield a lot of food for thought. … this book should appeal to a host of individuals, especially practitioners of neonatal care, as they pursue the quest of promoting intact survival of the ELGA neonates under their care, free from the wrath of morbidities, including BPD.” (J. P. Shenai, Journal of Perinatology, Vol. 37, 2017)

“The purpose is to provide as an up‐to‐date reference on BPD, to spur new research and improve outcomes for newborns with respiratory disease. These worthy objectives are well met by this comprehensive book. The audience is clinicians and researchers in the area of neonatal respiratory medicine. … field is advancing quickly and this comprehensive book brings all of the most recent research together in one well-written reference. It should be a welcome addition to the libraries of all clinical neonatologists.” (Jay P. Goldsmith, Doody's Book Reviews, June, 2016)
