Since 1959, when it was reported that many preterm infants had surfactant deficiency, there has been a remarkable improvement in the prevention of respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) and in the care of infants who develop RDS. Antenatal corticosteroids and surfactant replacement have improved the care of very low birth weight infants.
