Summary
Transient tachypnea of the newborn is a respiratory problem that can be seen in the newborn shortly after delivery. It is the most common cause of respiratory distress in term neonates. It is likely due to retained lung fluid. It is most often seen in 35+ week gestation babies who are delivered by Caesarean section. Usually, this condition resolves over 24-48 hours.
