  • The most common lower respiratory tract infection is pneumonia, an infection of the lungs which is usually caused by bacteria, particularly Streptococcus pneumoniae in Western countries. (wikipedia.org)
  • interstitial

  • Oxygenation
  • Typical cases are late preterm newborns who have an increased risk of intracranial hemorrhage and for whom their small vessel size poses technical limitations for Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). (wikipedia.org)
  • birth
  • Our firm's birth injury respiratory distress syndrome lawyers know the right medical experts who can prove fault, even when liability is initially unclear. (rosenbaumnylaw.com)
  • When the newborn is expelled from the birth canal, its central nervous system reacts to the sudden change in temperature and environment. (wikipedia.org)
  • This was the reason newborn babies were always held upside down immediately after birth (so that any residual fluid drains downwards) and smacked to make them cry strongly. (wikipedia.org)
  • deaths
  • Malignant tumors of the respiratory system, particularly primary carcinomas of the lung, are a major health problem responsible for 15% of all cancer diagnoses and 30% of all cancer deaths. (wikipedia.org)
  • intensive care
  • A neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), also known as an intensive care nursery (ICN), is an intensive care unit specializing in the care of ill or premature newborn infants. (wikipedia.org)
