Preventing Continuous Positive Airway Pressure Failure: Evidence-Based and Physiologically Sound Practices from Delivery Room to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

ABSTRACT

DOI: 10.1016/j.clp.2018.01.011
The incidence of bronchopulmonary dysplasia, and the competing outcomes death or bronchopulmonary dysplasia, is decreased with early initiation of nCPAP.  The best available evidence supports the premise that efforts to minimize CPAP failure start in the delivery room.  Various modes and interfaces to deliver CPAP exist; although there may be considerable differences in the ability of these various CPAP devices to prevent failure, little data from RCT exist to support this.
