Abstract Little is known about the effect on clinically relevant outcomes of the complex hemodynamic changes occurring during adaptation to extrauterine life in preterm neonates, particularly in very low birth weight neonates. As cardiovascular adaptation in this extremely vulnerable patient population is complicated by immaturity of all organ systems, especially that of the cardiorespiratory, central nervous, and endocrine systems, maladaptation has been suspected, but not necessarily proven, to contribute to mortality and long-term morbidities. This article describes recent advances in the understanding of hemodynamic changes in very low birth weight neonates during postnatal transition, and reviews the complex and developmentally regulated interaction between systemic and cerebral hemodynamics and the effect of this interaction on clinically relevant outcomes.
