Immature newborn rabbits, delivered on day 27 of gestation were ventilated artificially for 5–10 min with a peak insufflation pressure of about 35 cm H2O, with or without previous treatment with natural surfactant via the airways. The alveolar expansion pattern and the surface structure of the airways were then examined by scanning and transmission electron… CONTINUE READING
