Transient Tachypnea of Newborn notes


What is Transient Tachypnea of Newborn (TTN)?

Transient tachypnea of the newborn is the result of a delay in clearance of fetal lung liquid.

Presentation: Signs of respiratory distress (e.g., tachypnea, nasal flaring, grunting, retractions, cyanosis in extreme cases) become evident shortly after birth.

CXR: Prominent perihilar streaking, which correlates with the engorgement of the lymphatic system with retained lung fluid, and fluid in the fissures. Small pleural effusions may be seen.

Treatment is supportive.'
