CPAP for Neonates


CPAP as a Non-Invasive Ventilation Method for Neonates

Introduction: What is CPAP and How Does It Work?

Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) is a non-invasive ventilation method that helps to treat sleep apnea and other breathing difficulties. It works by providing a steady stream of air pressure that keeps the airways open, allowing for easier breathing. CPAP is often used in neonatal care as an alternative to more invasive treatments such as intubation or mechanical ventilation.

In addition, CPAP can be used to help improve oxygen levels in premature babies, reduce respiratory distress syndrome, and prevent complications associated with apnea of prematurity. By providing continuous positive airway pressure, CPAP helps ensure that patients receive the oxygen they need while reducing the risk of complications from sleep apnea and other breathing difficulties.
