AIM:

The aim of our review was to describe the clinical response to inhaled nitric oxid (iNO) in a series of preterm babies in respiratory failure during uplift transfers to a neonatal intensive care unit.

METHODS:

We performed a retrospective review critical newborns with gestational age <34+0 weeks transferred from January 2013 to December 2018. Data were extracted from our Clinical Information System for Transport. The primary measure of this review was to assess if a significant improvement in the oxygenation saturation index (OSI) occurred following the use of iNO.

RESULTS:

Thirty preterm babies <34+0 weeks were included in our review. OSI, as a measure of oxygenation, did not statistically improve as an immediate response to iNO from referral to receiving hospital (17.1 vs 16.4; p=0.7). We found that pH (7.15 vs 7.29, p=0.004) and pCO2 (8.1 vs 6.3; p=0.05) significantly improved probably based on ventilation management.

CONCLUSION:

Following the recommendations of the American Academy of Pediatrics and other organizations, iNO should not routinely be used during the neonatal transfer of preterm babies <34+0 in respiratory failure. We need to conduct further studies to establish which selected preterm patients would benefit from being treated with iNO. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
