Study Notes

Persistence of Fetal Circulatory Pattern in PPHN

  • Hypoxia and acidosis contribute to the persistence of the fetal circulatory pattern in Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension (PPHN)

Diagnosis of PPHN

  • A PaO2 or oxygen saturation gradient between preductal and post-ductal sites of blood sampling suggests right-to-left shunting and diagnoses PPHN
  • Chronic fetal hypoxia is a consequence in the pathogenesis of PPHN

Associated Conditions

  • Meconium aspiration syndrome is associated with obstructive PPHN
