Abstract
There are several aerosolized drugs which have been used in the treatment of neonatal respiratory illnesses, such as: bronchodilators, diuretics and surfactants. Preclinical in vitro and in vivo studies identifi ed a number of variables that aff ect aerosol effi ciency including particle size, aerosol fl ows, nebulizer choice and placement. Nevertheless, an optimized aerosol drug delivery system for mechanically ventilated infants still does not exist. Th e results of the research focused on the inhalational therapies among infants requiring invasive and non-invasive ventilator support brought confl icting conclusions. Th ere were diff erent nominal doses used, which did not lead to consistent clinical and biological eff ects. Aerosol particle size as well as emitted dose at the patient interface was not analyzed in most of the randomized clinical studies, which does not allow for objective assessment of the eff ectiveness of inhalational therapies for diff erent indications. Increasing interest in the aerosol therapy requires more controlled and focused research of drug / device combinations appropriate for the neonatal population in the future.
