Abstract: With the advent of ventilatory care for newborn in India, the practicing pediatrician is likely to see the "intensive care nursery survivors" who are likely to manifest an abnormal pulmonary outcome during infancy. These include: sudden death, bronchopulmonary dysplasia (with chronic lung disease and even core pulmonale), reactive airway disease, an increased propensity for respiratory infections and anatomical complications as subglottic stenosis, tracheobronchomalacia or palatal grooves. These not only have effects on respiratory compromise but also impact on feeding, growth and development.
