Management l.jpg

Management

  • Management depends on diagnosis

  • Maintenance of adequate gas exchange

    • Maintain Airway

    • Oxygenation and Carbon dioxide elimination

    • Adequate pH

    • Adequate cardiac output and perfusion

  • Surgery

    • Pneumothorax/Cysts/Diaphragmatic hernia

  • Supportive therapy

    • Thermoregulation, Nutrition, Fluid and Electrolyte balance, etc

    • Antimicrobial therapy


Maintenance of gas exchange l.jpg

Maintenance of gas exchange

  • Respiratory management depends on diagnosis

  • Usual sequence:

    No support  O2 hood  CPAP  Mechanical ventilation (conventional)

    High Frequency ventilation  add Nitric Oxide  ECMO

  • Surfactant may be useful in term infants with respiratory failure

    (Lotze et al. J Pediatr 132:40, 1998; Greenough. Eur J Pediatr 159:635, 2000)


Indications for mechanical ventilation l.jpg

Indications for mechanical ventilation

  • Clinical:Absolute: Apnea (intractable), gasping, cyanosis not responsive to O2 by hood

    Relative: Severe tachypnea / retractions

  • Laboratory (while on CPAP or FiO2 > 0.7):

    pH < 7.25 with PCO2> 60 mm Hg

    (or) PO2< 45- 50 and / or SpO2 < 85 %

  • Other: Surgical procedures, compromised airway


Term infants with pphn l.jpg

Term infants with PPHN

Confirm diagnosis of PPHN

Correct underlying abnormalities (hypothermia, acidosis, hypocalcemia, hypoglycemia, polycythemia)

Conservative mechanical ventilation

Trial of hyperventilation

If low PO2, trial of rescue therapies
