Chronic lung disease in infants

Chronic lung disease, or bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD), is a condition that causes breathing problems in newborns. It is most common in babies who are premature. It causes symptoms such as wheezing, grunting, and fast breathing. Treatment helps the baby breathe more easily while the lungs mature and heal on their own.
