HMD or RDS : Surfactant is used to treat or prevent rds or in older terminology hmd. Surfactant reverses the surfactant deficient state, but does not instantly "cure" rds but permits the use of less use of the ventilator and supplementation oxygen. Surfactant use reduces pulmonary airleaks and reduces mortality in multiple randomized controlled clinical trials.
