Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Aim:  To predict early nasal continuous positive airway pressure failure within the first 2 hours after birth in preterm infants. Methods:  Patient and respiratory support variables significantly associated with continuous positive airway pressure failure in the first 72 hours after birth were identified in a cohort of preterm infants < 30 weeks gestation. Using multivariable logistic regression analysis, risk estimates for early nasal continuous positive airway pressure failure were calculated. Results:  From 182 infants included 62(34%) failed early nasal continuous positive airway pressure. Birth weight ≤800 g, male gender and a fraction of inspired oxygen >0.25 at 1 and 2 hours of age were significantly associated with early nasal continuous positive airway pressure failure. Combining these variables in a logistic regression model provided a minimal risk estimate for failure of 0.04[0.01-0.23] (female >800 gram, FiO(2) ≤0.25 at 1, and 2 hours) and maximal estimate of 0.92[0.44-0.99] (male ≤800 gram, FiO(2) >0.25 at 1 and 2 hours). Conclusion:  Combining gender, birth weight and the fraction of inspired oxygen at 1 and 2 hours of age allows for a better and more individualized prediction of early nasal continuous positive airway pressure failure in preterm infants less than 30 weeks gestation.
