Description

The purpose of this study is to determine the best way to care for babies diagnosed with transient tachypnea of the newborn (TTN). Transient tachypnea of the newborn is a diagnosis given to infants born between 34 and 42 weeks gestation who develop difficulty breathing during the first days of life when no other specific cause of the breathing difficulty can be identified. In this study, the researchers compare the amount of time it takes babies to recover from TTN depending on how much intravenous (IV) fluid the baby receives during the first five days of life.
