Chronic Lung Disease

Chronic lung disease (CLD) is a general term for long-term respiratory problems in premature babies.

At Children's Lung Specialists, we will determine a specific treatment for your baby based on his or her gestational age, overall health, extent of the disease, and your baby's tolerance for specific medications, procedures or therapies, and outlook regarding the course of the disease.

Treatments may include oxygen therapy, mechanical ventilation, medications such as brochodilators to help open the airway passages or steroids to help reduce inflammation, and giving medication to reduce excessive fluid in the lungs.
