Press Release

Neonatal apnea treatment is a major concern for pediatric surgeons engaged in the provision of neonatal intensive care. Bradycardia in the neonates is considered as clinically significant if the heartbeat slows by 30 bpm from the resting heart rate. Secondly, the oxygen saturation level below 85% is considered pathologic in the neonates if this condition persists for more than 5 seconds.

Caffeine citrate is leading the drug class segment for the neonatal apnea treatment market. The exact mechanism of action pertaining to caffeine citrate in the treatment of neonatal apnea is not known but several clinical trial investigations have revealed that it enhances the stimulation of central respiratory centers, decrease the threshold to hypercapnia, increases minute ventilation, enhance the diaphragmatic activity, increase oxygen consumption, etc. Doxapram is usually recommended in neonates which are not responding to the methylxanthine therapy in conjunction with continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP). It is considered as the drug of last resort by pediatricians worldwide when pharmacological therapy fails to control apnea in the neonates.
