Brief description Every year in Australia, thousands of newborn babies have breathing difficulties. Our trial will study a new, simple method of providing breathing support to newborn babies in special care nurseries, called high-flow (HF). HF is cheaper, easier to use, and more comfortable for babies than the current standard treatment, called CPAP. If HF is as good as CPAP at supporting babies' breathing, it will change practice in Australia and around the world.
