Abstract

Neonates with chronic respiratory failure have uncertain prognosis and can face significant treatment burden. As the trajectory of the illness becomes more concerning, consultation with a pediatric palliative service should be considered, especially as therapeutic options shift from standard to “innovative.” Benefits include as follows: supporting emotionally conflicted providers and parents, maintaining transparency in determination of goals, and balancing medical progress with each individual patient's and family's best interests.
