Infants born at <28 weeks of gestation who survive can experience long-term impacts from subtle abnormalities in respiratory function to profound disability including asthma, early COPD, or long-term dependence on mechanical ventilation. It is unclear how maternal environmental exposures, geographic differences, social factors, or genetic predisposition in the pre-conceptional period or during pregnancy might contribute to this disparity in outcomes for premature infants.
