Hold the Gas? Inhaled Nitric Oxide of No Benefit to Most Premature Babies

Release Date: January 10, 2011

A new Johns Hopkins Children’s Center study challenges the widespread practice of treating premature babies with nitric oxide gas to prevent lung problems, neurological damage and death. The research, based on analysis of 22 major studies of the effect of nitric oxide in babies born before 34 weeks of age, found no evidence of benefit in most infants.
