In the study mentioned by Stefan they used Caffeine both as a treatment and prophylactic drug.

We do so too. Especially if the baby is born less than 28-30 weeks of gestational age we often use it prophylactic. We usually wean the babies from the drug by not adapting the dose to the increasing weight and try to stop it with about 34-35 GA.

While on Caffeine-prophylaxes/therapy we have them on SaO2 monitoring for dosing reasons.

Many greetings from Sweden
