Abstract

The distribution of births in many regions of Southern Italy is scattered among a high number of level I centers, many of which still count less than 500 deliveries per year. Campania, the region around Naples, is no exception and this excessive fragmentation results in a high number of neonatal transports, many of which for respiratory distress. In the present paper, we review three different regional peculiarities relevant to the respiratory management of extremely low gestational age babies.
