Theoretically, EIT holds immense potential in the neonatal lung, where traditional ‘gold-standard’ techniques in adults are either impractical or harmful. This presentation will critically appraise the potential uses of EIT in the neonatal population, the current state of the literature and detail new advances in EIT that highlight the potential of EIT to guide therapy in this vulnerable population, especially at birth.
