Anderson, C., & Hillman, N. H. (2019). Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia: When the Very Preterm Baby Comes Home. Missouri medicine, 116(2), 117–122.
Many infants with severe bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) can be safely managed with oxygen at home. This review covers criteria for home oxygen therapy, monitoring, and weaning protocols for oxygen therapy in the outpatient setting. Although most infants with BPD are weaned from oxygen within a year, they continue to have pulmonary function abnormalities into adolescence. These infants also require evaluation for pulmonary hypertension, systemic hypertension, and a strong focus on adequate nutritional needs for growth.
