Abstract


Objective: To investigate the clinical effect of budesonide nebulization in the treatment of ventilator associated pneumonia of newborns and its safety.

Methods: Forty-five newborns who had ventilator associated pneumonia and were admitted into the Binzhou People’s Hospital between May 2014 and May 2015 were selected and included as an observation group. Moreover, another forty-five newborns who had ventilator associated pneumonia but did not undergo budesonide treatment in 2014 were randomly selected and included as a control group. Patients in the observation group were given budesonide suspension nebulization in addition to the conventional treatment. The evaluation indicators for therapeutic effect were compared between the two groups. The changes of head circumference, height and weight and death rate were observed by follow up after treatment.

Results: The mechanical ventilation time, time for recovering from chest X-ray scan and hospitalization time of patients in the observation group were shorter than that of the control group, and the difference had statistical significance (P<0.05). The oxygen index of the patients in the observation group was significantly improved compared to that of the control group, and the difference had statistical significance (P<0.05). Patients in the two groups were followed up for six months after discharge. The head circumference, height and weight of the patients in the observation group in the 3rd and 6th month were compared to those of the control group, suggesting no significant differences (P>0.05). The cumulative death rate of the observation group in the 6th month after treatment was significantly lower than that of the control group, and the difference had statistical significance (P<0.05).

Conclusion: Treating ventilator associated pneumonia of newborns with budesonide nebulization can effectively shorten mechanical ventilation time, time for recovering from chest X‑ray scan and hospitalization time, improve pulmonary diffusion function and reduce the death rate, without affecting the growth and development of patients in the future.
