Latest ERS Monograph

Respiratory Diseases of the Newborn Infant

Managing respiratory problems in newborns requires experience and teamwork, an understanding of the background behind the problems, and knowledge of the evidence behind the clinical options available. It is with this in mind that the European Respiratory Society has published its latest ERS Monograph: Respiratory Diseases of the Newborn Infant, guest edited by Ian P. Sinha, Jayesh Mahendra Bhatt, Alex Cleator and Helen Wallace.

In this Monograph, the guest editors have brought together science, evidence and expertise in a collection of comprehensive, state-of-the-art reviews written by leading authors in the field. Chapters cover: the structure and function of the newborn respiratory system; neonatal lung disease in preterm infants; and developmental, structural and functional diseases of the respiratory system. The book also includes important discussion about the socioeconomic determinants of early years respiratory health, newborn lung disease in low- and middle-income countries and the ethics of neonatal resuscitation.

This Monograph is a valuable resource for neonatal clinicians, scientists researching the area and adult clinicians managing lung health.
