UMS member Janet Peacock continues her work on ventilation methods in infants

Janet Peacock has published, along with colleagues in London, UK, a study titled:


The study published in the European Journal of Pedicatrics aimed to ‘test the hypothesis that neurally adjusted ventilatory assist (NAVA) compared to assist control ventilation (ACV) would result in a lower OI in infants with evolving or established BPD’. The study undertaken at Kings College Hopsital London, concluded that ‘NAVA compared to ACV improved oxygenation in prematurely born infants with evolving or established bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD)’.
