Prevalence and Incidence of Neonatal Respiratory Distress Syndrome

Prevalance of Neonatal Respiratory Distress Syndrome:

40,000 infants and 150,000 adults with adult RDS (NHLBI) ... see also overview of Neonatal Respiratory Distress Syndrome.

Prevalance Rate:

approx 1 in 6,800 or 0.01% or 40,000 people in USA [Source statistic for calcuation: "40,000 infants and 150,000 adults with adult RDS (NHLBI)" -- see also general information about data sources]

Neonatal Respiratory Distress Syndrome: Rare Disease

Neonatal Respiratory Distress Syndrome is listed as a "rare disease" by the Office of Rare Diseases (ORD) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). This means that Neonatal Respiratory Distress Syndrome, or a subtype of Neonatal Respiratory Distress Syndrome, affects less than 200,000 people in the US population.

Ophanet, who are a consortium of European partners, currently defines a condition rare when if affects 1 person per 2,000. They list Neonatal Respiratory Distress Syndrome as a "rare disease". More information about Neonatal Respiratory Distress Syndrome is available from Orphanet

    About prevalence and incidence statistics:

    The term 'prevalence' of Neonatal Respiratory Distress Syndrome usually refers to the estimated population of people who are managing Neonatal Respiratory Distress Syndrome at any given time. The term 'incidence' of Neonatal Respiratory Distress Syndrome refers to the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Neonatal Respiratory Distress Syndrome diagnosed each year. Hence, these two statistics types can differ: a short-lived disease like flu can have high annual incidence but low prevalence, but a life-long disease like diabetes has a low annual incidence but high prevalence. For more information see about prevalence and incidence statistics.
