Improvement in the care of premature infants, particularly due to more sophisticated ventilation and monitoring techniques, has increased the numbers of babies surviving, even as young as 24 weeks of gestation. Many of these preterm newborn babies develop a respiratory distress syndrome due to hyaline membrane disease within the first few hours of birth: uncomplicated hyaline membrane disease is self limiting and resolves in 7 to 10 days, but complicated hyaline membrane disease leads to bronchopulmonary dysplasia or chronic lung disease (CLD).
