What is Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia – BPD?
(Symptoms, Causes & Treatment)
According to the American Lung Association, Bronchopulmonary dysplasia is a form of chronic lung disease which affects newborns (mostly premature) and infants. The condition results from damage to the lungs caused by mechanical ventilation (respirator) and long-term use of oxygen. Most infants recover from BPD, but some may have long-term breathing difficulty.
There is no specific test for the diagnosis of BPD, nor is there specific cure. However, there are treatments that help prevent, delay or minimize the symptoms.
