This session will review the recent literature and incorporate clinical experience to highlight recent developments in bronchopulmonary dysplasia. Specifically the discussion will focus on basic epidemiology, current and novel therapeutics approaches and long term pulmonary outcomes. BPD is relatively common and thus this session should be relevant for anyone who cares for children with lung disease.

Learning Objectives
At the end of this presentation, attendees will be able to:

  • Describe the epidemiology of BPD;
  • Discuss preventative and novel treatments for BPD; and
  • Describe long-term pulmonary outcomes of BPD.
