Q&A: What Is BPD?

What is BPD?

BPD, or Bronchopulmonary dysplasia, is a type of lung condition seen in premature babies. It’s due to a combination of immature lungs and damage from oxygen and breathing equipment. Premature babies with BPD are more likely to have breathing problems if they contract a virus like RSV or the flu.
