Dear Netters,

We are suffering with babies who had severe MAS and PPHN, mainly treated by HFOV and iNO. After recovery they develop severe bronchospasm, we treat them by salbutamol nebs, inhailer, racemic epinephrine nebs, iv dexamethasone, and sometimes even iv salbutamol.

I would like to share with all of you your experience in such cases.

Dear Colleague,

I am not talking about long term reactive airway disease.

My concern is the immediate recovery period after improving of the PPHN and before extubation.
