      Abstract:

      We show that smellprints of volatile organic components measured   with an electronic nose (Cyranose 320; Smiths Detection Group   Ltd, Watford, United Kingdom) differ between tracheal aspirates   from preterm neonates with or without laboratory-confirmed   bloodstream infections and with or without subsequent development   of bronchopulmonary dysplasia. Tracheal aspirate smellprints   could be useful noninvasive diagnostic markers for preterm   neonates.
