Abstract

We evaluated lung function in 20 infants with bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) during the first year of life. Compared with a group of age- and size-matched controls, the infants with BPD had a significantly (P2 was negatively correlated with maximal expiratory flow at FRC, indicating that measurement of Sao2 alone may not be sufficient in the evaluation of lung function in infants with BPD. We conclude that, although infants with BPD improve clinically during the first year of life, they have abnormal functional airway growth; the decreased expiratory flow reserve helps to explain their high risk for acute respiratory distress during lower respiratory tract lliness.
