    initial CPAP level used was 5 cm H2O. CPAP levels up to12 cm H2O may be necessary to optimize lung volumes in infants with extremely non-compliant lungs.Higher CPAP levels may be needed in order to recruit lungs with low compliances; however, values exceeding 8 –10 cm H2O are more likely to result in oral leakage, and CPAP levels exceeding 10 –12 cm H2O have been associated with greater risk of gastric insufflation.
