Early-term birth linked to increased respiratory symptoms throughout childhood

July 6, 2015

Delivery at 37 to 38 weeks of gestation is associated with increased respiratory symptoms throughout childhood, according to study results.

“Our results show that early–term-born children up to 10 years of age had up to 70% greater risk of respiratory symptoms and up to 50% greater inhaler use than similarly aged term-born children,” Martin O. Edwards, BM, MRCPCH, from the Institute of Molecular and Experimental Medicine at Cardiff University School of Medicine, and colleagues wrote. “Early–term-born children aged 5 years or greater also had increased risk of chest infections and antibiotic use when compared with those born at full term.”
