Impact of mechanical ventilation on haemodynamic in neonate


This review presents the main physiological principles of cardiorespiratory relationships during spontaneous respiration and in conditions of positive pressure ventilation. The characteristic of systemic and intrapulmonary hemodynamics is given. A systematic approach is presented to minimize the negative effects of positive pressure on the hemodynamic status of a newborn during mechanical ventilation.

Keywords:neonatal intensive care unit, respiratory care, hemodynamic, cardiopulmonary relationships, neonates
