Advances in neonatal intensive care have resulted in increasing survival of very small babies, who often require prolonged periods of mechanical ventilation. These babies have limited nutritional reserves, and are difficult to feed by either parenteral or enteral routes. This review article discusses the interaction between undernutrition and respiratory muscle function in the critically ill preterm baby.
