Respiratory Distress Syndrome - Causes

lung diseases  RDS  neonatal respiratory distress  bronchopulmonary dysplasia  oxygen therapy 

RDS is a type of neonatal respiratory disease that is caused most often by a lack of surfactant in the lungs. A fetus's lungs start making surfactant during the third trimester of pregnancy, or weeks 26 through labor and delivery. Surfactant coats the insides of the air sacs, or alveoli, in the lungs. This helps keep the lungs open so breathing can occur after birth.
