Author(s): Dr. Sabu Sundareshan Reetha, Dr. JM Pawar
Abstract: Respiratory distress is one of the most common reasons a neonate is admitted to the neonatal intensive care unit. And in resource poor settings there are higher rates of mortality and morbidity due to the lack of ventilation facilities.so this study aims in understanding the effectiveness of indiginenous bubble CPAP in neonates with respiratory distress. Materials and Method: Neonates will be selected on the basis of inclusion and exclusion criteria. The parity and age of mother of the newborns with respiratory distress will be noted and analysed. Gender and the birth weight of every selected baby will be recorded. The cause of respiratory distress will be made by clinical examination and further investigations. Conclusion: Indigenous Bubble CPAP, thus, may be considered as a primary mode of respiratory support in resource poor settings. It is an effective way of improving oxygenation and also reduces the complications, hospital stay and the need for mechanical ventilation.
