Despite significant technological advances and increasing survival of premature infants, bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) continues to be the most prevalent major morbidity in surviving very low-birthweight infants. Infants with BPD are often sicker, require longer stays in the NICU, and accumulate greater hospital costs. However, care of the infant with BPD extends beyond the time spent in the NICU. This article reviews the costs of BPD in the health-care setting, during the initial hospitalization and beyond, and the long-term neurodevelopmental impact of BPD, as well as the impact on a family caring for a child with BPD.
