[CG] Respiratory management of preterm infants

exp date isn't null, but text field is


This guideline updates the previous Respiratory Management of Preterm Infants guideline (June 2016).  This reflects current evidence for the use of primary respiratory support with nasal CPAP in selected infants.  It continues to provide guidance for the use of intubation and surfactant therapy or less invasive surfactant administration (LISA), for those infants who require escalation of support or who fail on CPAP alone. It also presents some of the current approaches to the use of postnatal steroids in preterm infants.
