Disturbed surface properties in preterm infants with pneumonia.


Congenital pneumonia in preterm infants is often associated with respiratory insufficiency requiring mechanical ventilation. This study was performed to show whether pneumonia in these infants is associated with an inhibition or deficiency of surfactant. The ratio of lecithin and sphingomyelin (L/S ratio) and minimal surface tension were determined in… (More)
