OI, oxygen overloads [SpO], alveolar-arterial oxygen incline [A-aDO2], a/A ratio, and SOPI [for non-invasive publicized babies] were checked successively every 6 hours.

Results: Mean ± SD of incubation stage was 38.5±8.39 with C.I [37.6 to 39.7] weeks. Mean ± SD of birth weight was 3215±348 with C.I [3172.7 to 3257.8] grams. Effectiveness of oral sildenafil was noted in 208 [78.72%] patents while 56 [21.23%] was found to be non-effective [P-value<0.001*].
