  Purpose
The purpose of this study is to establish if a strategy of EBCPAP application in a subgroup of VLBWI, 800 to 1500g birthweight, decreases the need for mechanical ventilation in this group, without affecting mortality.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Need for mechanical ventilation

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Days of oxygen therapy
  • Days of mechanical ventilation
  • Need for surfactant
  • Pulmonary airleak
  • Intraventricular hemorrhage
  • Persistent ductus arteriosus
  • retinopathy of prematurity
  • Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) at 28 days and 36 weeks corrected gestational age.

Estimated Enrollment: 256
Study Start Date: January 2007
Estimated Study Completion Date: September 2009
Estimated Primary Completion Date: April 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:

The application of CPAP has been described as an alternative respiratory support for premature newborns with respiratory distress.Many studies support that the early use of CPAP results in a better respiratory evolution and less need for mechanical ventilation.

Hypothesis:

- The hypothesis is that EBCPAP will decrease the need for this more invasive therapy.

The primary endpoint in this multicenter controlled study is to establish if an strategy of EBCPAP application in a subgroup of VLBWI, 800 to 1500g birthweight, decreases the need for mechanical ventilation in this group, without affecting mortality. .

As secondary outcome, the investigators will analyse: days of oxygen therapy, days of mechanical ventilation, need for surfactant , pulmonary airleak, intraventricular hemorrhage, persistent ductus arteriosus, retinopathy of prematurity and bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) at 28 days and 36 weeks corrected gestational age.

Comparison(s):

Early Bubble CPAP (EBCPAP)with Standard Therapy which is oxygen.
