Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia in Children: A Review of Early Onset Lung Disorder

For children, there is a great risk for developing a lung disorder early when exposed to ventilation or respiratory distress syndrome. This is an overview of one such disorder

For children who suffer from the traumatic lung injury that results in complications of inflammation and scarring, most often the complication that develops is known as bronchopulmonary dysplasia. In this lung disease, the young child often experiences an event that traumatizes the lungs, leads to changes in lung tissue and then, ultimately, developing into scarring. Many times this type of lung disease is found in children who were placed on ventilation, long term, at a very young age, possibly due to premature birth or the development of respiratory distress syndrome, RDS.

While treatment for the child with bronchopulmonary dysplasia will include use of oxygen and other forms of prescription medication treatment, the complications associated with this lung disorder are life sustaining. That is to say, the lung complications will not subside, in your child, with time and will continue to progressively worsen with the onset of future infections and may even complicate the child's health into adulthood.

In terms of treatment beyond oxygen, many children with bronchopulmonary dysplasia will require the administration of corticosteroids and bronchodilators to expand the lung passageway. With proper administration of these treatments, soon after the complication of lung disease presents, the bronchopulmonary dysplasia can be slowed in progression, with an almost full resolution of symptoms within a few weeks and months. However, in many cases, the bronchopulmonary dysplasia complications will never be resolved.

In fact, long term, children with bronchopulmonary dysplasia often experience an increased incidence of hospitalizations for infections and complications we, in the general public, would consider to be relatively minor. Because the lung tissue of the bronchopulmonary dysplasia patient is damaged, however, without proper medical intervention, future infections can worsen and become difficult to treat.

As with any lung disorder in your child, the key to your child's healthy outcome will lie in the early intervention, diagnosis and treatment. When suffering from lung infection, or experiencing respiratory distress syndrome or premature birth, it is very possible your infant may develop bronchopulmonary dysplasia quite early. Protecting the lungs of your infant, therefore, is crucial to managing long term health and in preventing future hospitalizations for relatively minor lung infections.
