Changes in Pulmonary and Cerebral Blood Flow After Surfactant Treatment for Severe Respiratory Distress Syndrome
Neonatal respiratory distress syndrome remains a major cause of death and disability in babies. Death is often associated with development of acute complications such as pneumothorax and intraventricular haemorrhage (IVH). Long term disability may result from the sequelae of IVH or bronchopulmonary dysplasia.
