Abstract

Background: Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) is an entity not well recognized in the NICU and possibly mis-classified as severe RDS.

Case report: We report two premature infants severely hypoxic at birth refractory to usual treatment of RDS who responded to neuromuscular blockade and prone position which have been proven to be effective in adult and child ARDS.

Conclusion: A consensus definition, as well as criteria for the diagnosis of ARDS in the neonatal population is needed. A standard definition would allow comparisons to the adult and pediatric literature, as well as furthering research on the pathophysiology, epidemiology and effective management of ARDS in the neonatal population
