Delivery Room Management of RDS

Respiratory Distress Syndrome or RDS is a clinical syndrome characterized by respiratory failure in a preterm neonate. An increasing understanding of lung immaturity came from the discovery of surfactant deficiency in infants who died of RDS, then known as hyaline membrane disease. The immature lung in RDS is deficient in surfactant and is prone to atelectasis, which in turn leads to lung inflammation and poor gas exchange.
