OBJECTIVE To evaluate the applicability and potential effectiveness of a technique of minimally-invasive surfactant therapy (MIST) in preterm infants on continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP). METHODS An open feasibility study of MIST was conducted at two sites. Infants were eligible for MIST if needing CPAP pressure ≥7 cm H(2)O and FiO(2) ≥0.3 (25-28 weeks gestation, n=38) or ≥0.35 (29-32 weeks, n=23). Without premedication, a narrow-bore catheter was inserted through the vocal cords… CONTINUE READING
