Transient tachypnea of the newborn (TTNB) is a respiratory problem seen in the newborn shortly after delivery. It is likely due to retained lung fluid, and common in 35+ week gestation babies who are delivered by cesarian section without labour. Usually, this condition resolves over 24-48 hours. Treatment includes supplemental oxygen and antibiotics.
