Phospholipid parameters -- lecithin/sphingomyelin (L/S) ratio and palmitic acid/stearic acid (P/S) ratio -- of gastric (GA), pharyngeal (PA), and tracheal aspirates (TA) have often been used for estimation of lung maturation. However, it was not known whether values from different sources can be alternatively used. The study was performed to test whether P/S and L/S ratios in GA, PA, and TA are comparable. 11 GA, 30 PA, and 10 TA were obtained from infants within 10 min after birth. All infants… CONTINUE READING
