Newborn Respiratory Disorders

Respiratory distress syndrome is a common among newborn babies. Antibiotics are often routinely prescribed for all infants with respiratory distress due to the difficulty in excluding respiratory infections. A pleural effusion is an excessive accumulation of fluid in the pleural space. Pulmonary hemosiderosis is a rare condition characterized by spontaneous pulmonary hemorrhage, often associated with iron-deficiency anemia. Pneumonia occur due to lung inflammation caused by bacterial or viral infection, in which the air sacs fill with pus and may become solid.
