Highlights relevant animal models for studying the process of chronic lung disease through its evolution and during recovery!
Written by nearly 75 leading international authorities on lung disease during early childhood development who describe the clinical, radiographic, and pathological changes that have occurred in the 30 years since bronchopulmonary dysplasia was first discovered, Chronic Lung Disease in Early Infancy
