Preterm delivery and Lung Development

Lung development must continue for survival of the very low birth weight infant after preterm delivery at 26 weeks.

  • Antenatal infection/inflammation associated with chorioamnionitis can modulate lung development
  • Postnatal causes of inflammation such as mechanical ventilation, supplemental oxygen, or infection.
  • The stages of lung development are modified from Burri 2000 (PMID 10816189).
