    Over several months the seriousness of the lung injury diminishes as healthy lung tissue grows. However, later on, these children may have problems with growth and problems with the growth and development of the brain or central nervous system. These children are at increased risk of developing asthma and viral pneumonia, such as that caused during winter months by respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection.

    Bronchopulmonary dysplasia is a form of chronic lung disease that affects newborns and infants. It results from damage to the lungs caused by mechanical ventilation and long-term use of oxygen. Most infants recover from BPD, but some may have long-term breathing difficulty.

    Most newborns who develop BPD are born more than 10 weeks before their due dates, weigh less than 2 pounds at birth, and have breathing problems. Infections that occur before or shortly after birth also can contribute to BPD.

    Most babies who develop BPD are born with respiratory distress syndrome (RDS). If premature newborns still require oxygen therapy by the time they reach 36 weeks gestation, they are diagnosed with BPD.Some newborns may need long-term oxygen or breathing support from nasal continuous positive airway pressure (NCPAP) machines, ventilators, and medicines like bronchodilators.
