Exogenous surfactant therapy has become well established in newborn infants with respiratory distress. Many aspects of its use have been well evaluated in high-quality trials and systematic reviews. This statement summarizes the evidence and gives recommendations for the use of surfactant therapy in a variety of clinical situations.

Conclusion: Surfactant replacement therapy improved oxygenation in the study subjects, suggesting that surfactant may have a role in the treatment of severe MAS in term and near-term infants. I always found surfactant science hard, and regularly skipped over stuff I thought was useless or irrelevant. My aim in this book is to give you the science you really must know, and give it in the easiest-possible manner. That means a book/app hybrid. Every key equation in the book is linked to an app that brings the equation to life. Surfactant replacement therapy may also be a consideration in other situations like worsening pulmonary hemorrhage.[3] This book is distributed under the terms of the Creative Commons A.

Lung surfactants are made from animal lung extract and contain phospholipids. Natural surfactant is produced by the alveolar cells in the lungs and line mainly the alveoli and small bronchioles, and prevents the alveoli from collapsing. Lung surfactant makes it easier for oxygen to penetrate the lung surface lining and move into the blood. The human body produces diverse surfactants. Pulmonary surfactant is produced in lungs in order to facilitate breathing by increasing total lung capacity, TLC, and lung compliance. In respiratory distress syndrome or RDS surfactant replacement therapy helps patients have normal respiration by using pharmaceutical forms of the surfactants. One example of pharmaceutical pulmonary surfactants is. Surfactant therapy and intracranial hemorrhage: review of the literature and results of new analyses.
