Oxygen therapy - infants

Hypoxia - oxygen therapy in infants; Chronic lung disease - oxygen therapy in infants; BPD - oxygen therapy in infants; Bronchopulmonary dysplasia - oxygen therapy in infants

Babies with heart or lung problems may need to breathe increased amounts of oxygen to get normal levels of oxygen in their blood. Oxygen therapy provides babies with extra oxygen.

Oxygen hood

An oxygen hood is a plastic dome or box with warmed and humidified oxygen inside. The oxygen hood is used for babies who can breathe on their own but still need extra oxygen.

Lungs - infant

The lungs are located in the chest cavity. They are responsible for the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide between our blood and the air we breathe in and out. Cells in the body require a constant supply of oxygen in order to produce energy.
