Inhaled Iloprost for the Treatment of Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension in the Term and Near Term Infants.
Pilot Study: The Effect of Inhaled Iloprost on Oxygenation in Term and Near Term Infants With Pulmonary Hypertension. Testing Two Doses.

Inhaled Iloprost will be administered to near term infants with Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension of the Newborn in two different doses in order to test safety and efficacy in reducing pulmonary artery pressure.

Infants eligible for the study will be divided into two arms according to oxygenation index: Infants in arm A (OI <20) will receive nebulized Iloprost in a lower dose (50 ng/kg/min) for one hour, and a higher dose (100 ng/kg/min) for another hour. Infants in arm B (OI>20) will receive NO, and in addition will receive nebulized Iloprost in a lower dose for one hour and a higher dose for another hour.
