Endotracheal adrenaline use a newborn with pulmonary hemorrhage: A case report



Pulmonary Hemorrhage, Newborn, Adrenalin, Vitamin K


Pulmonary hemorrhage in the newborn is an acute and idiopathic event characterized by discharge of bloody fluid from the respiratory tract or endotracheal tube. In this case report we discussed 5 hours old neonate with pulmonary bleeding. We showed that endotracheal adrenaline use, gastric lavage with cold water and use of vitamin K in the treatment of neonates with pulmonary bleeding might shorten the duration of treatment and lower the mortality rate.
