Surfactant therapy – past, present and future

Patrick M. McCrossan, David G. Sweet


Surfactant replacement therapy for newborn infants with respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) has been available for about 35 years. During this time practice has evolved in relation to type of surfactant, timing and mode of administration. This review looks briefly at the history of surfactant use and how this has changed to shape current practice. We also speculate on potential future innovations that may further refine how this life-saving therapy is used.
