Exogenous surfactant utilization for respiratory failure in late and moderately preterm infants: impact on short- and long-term outcomes

The goal is to define and refine the current epidemiology, clinical characteristics, and treatment practices in respiratory failure in late and moderately preterm Infants. Specific aims include determining the incidence and epidemiology of respiratory failure in the neonates born at 32-36 weeks of gestation, describing disease severity and respiratory support by diagnostic category; describing the use of surfactant replacement therapy; and assessing the impact of surfactant replacement therapy on length of respiratory support, length of hospitalization, and respiratory outcomes in the first year of life.
