Abstract:   (7058 Views)
The routine intake of surfactant as a part of HMD (Hyaline Membrane Disease) treatment had significant effect on the prognosis of premature neonates. But since in our country this drug is not widely and routinely used, and there are not records about its use, we decided to make good on this shortcoming through a retrospective study. During 1 year, 54 neonates with HMD were admitted in Ali-Asghar's NICU, 30 of them had gestational age of less than 34 weeks and for 15 cases, surfactant was used. The results of treating this group were then compared with another group of neonates, who were not given this drug. From a statistical point of view, mortality, the length of the period in which the respirator was used, the use of high pressure in respirator, pneumothorax and pulmonary hemorrhage in neonates under treatment with surfactant was significantly less than those of the other group.
