(High Speed Packet Access) A family of high-speed 3G and 4G digital data services governed by the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP). Deployed by GSM cellular carriers, at the end of 2014, nearly two billion subscribers were using HSPA worldwide. Although based on WCDMA, HSPA is a major enhancement with more channels and enhanced modulation schemes. In addition, HSPA can recover faster from errors (see HARQ).

First deployed in the U.S. in 2005, subsequent HSPA+ (HSPA Plus) releases added support for multiple antennas and was designated as a 4G technology by the ITU (see MIMO). See LTE, 4G, 3GPP, DC HSPA, cellular generations, Wi-Fi vs. cellular, WCDMA, TDMA and GSM.

Support for 3G HSPA and 2G EDGE
When this iPhone 3G was in range of a 3G cell tower, it used HSPA. However, it throttled down to the EDGE (E) channel when 3G was not available.

[57], published on January 2017, has evaluated the ibuprofen intrarectal way ofadministration, which became as effective as the oral way in VLBW neonates with hsPDA. After treatment, in both groups the authors demonstrated higher levels of Cystatin-C, a biomarker of glomerular filtration which can suggest nephrotoxicity, indicating the necessity of a closely clinical observation especially in patients with a damaged renal function.
In most full term infants, the ductus arteriosus closes during the first 48 hours after birth.4 However, in many small preterm infants the ductus remains open allowing an increasing systemic-to-pulmonary shunt as the pulmonary vascular resistance falls due to the elevated sensitivity of the ductal tissue to the dilating effects of prostaglandins and low sensitivity to the effects of oxygen.5 As a result, the ductus of preterm infants can remain open for many days, and although it may constrict initially, it frequently reopens6 resulting in, the decreased in the systemic blood flow, while the pulmonary blood flow is increased.7 This is labelled as hemodynamically significant PDA (HsPDA).
