Brief Summary:
Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) is a common condition in the low birth weight infants. Although most of the BPD symptoms improved after a regular treatment in infancy, there are still a few late complications left such as the frequent respiratory symptoms, a slower weight gain and even sudden death. These late complications have made so much trouble to the healthcare of BPD infants. How to find the risk factors and to reduce the prevalence of these late symptoms becomes necessary. In this study, a cohort of BPD infants was observed with the late complications obtained by a monthly followed up for 18 months after discharge, the prevalence and risk factors of the late complications of BPD were analyzed by logistic regression. As one of the risk factors, GER was verified whether to play a critical role in these late complications.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. the Late Complications of BPD Infants [ Time Frame: 18 months ]
    In all patients, complications were evaluated via questionnaires at 3, 6, 9 and 12 months corrected for premature age, including respiratory symptoms (including home respiratory support, respiratory medication administration, cough without cold at least once per week, re-hospitalization due to respiratory diseases), vomiting when feeding, hypoxic ischemic injury, retinopathy of prematurity, rehospitalization and sudden death.
