More and earlier surfactant for preterm infants

By J L Hughes, E McCall, F Alderdice and J Jenkins


Surfactant administration to infants born at less than 32 weeks gestation was compared between two time periods (1 April 1994 to 31 March 1996 and 1 April 1999 to 31 March 2001). Overall administration increased significantly from 41% to 54%, and within one hour of birth from 13% to 60%. Regional data collection and feedback helps promote quality improvement and implementation of published evidence and guidelines
