Kaustubh Chaudhari, Manas Kumar Behera
Neonatal Respiratory Distress Syndrome (NRDS) is an important cause of mortality and morbidity in premature infants, primarily due to surfactant deficiency. A retrospective study was carried out in tertiary care neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) to analyze clinical profile, morbidity and mortality in our hospital. 150 neonates with gestational age <37wk with diagnosis of RDS as per clinical investigational guidelines were analyzed. 58% were males while 42% were females. 90% mothers received antenatal steroids out of which 15% babies died while 80% babies died whose mothers didn’t receive it. Total 66% babies received surfactant and mortality among them was 14% while 36% in babies who didn’t receive it.
Keywords: RDS, surfactant, antenatal steroid.
