Abstract:
The findings of this thesis suggest that children with CLD continue to have airway abnormalities including reversible airway obstruction, air trapping and impaired gas transfer compare to term and preterm controls at 8-12 years of age. Although they had similar exercise capacity to preterm and term control groups, this was at the expense of using greater proportion of their ventilatory reserve. At school age, they do not have evidence of myocardial dysfunction or subclinical pulmonary arterial hypertension.
