Neonatal Respiratory Diseases

Respiratory distress in the neonate most commonly presents as one or all of the following physical signs: tachypnea, grunting, nasal flaring, retractions, and cyanosis. A normal respiratory rate in a new-born is between 30 and 60 breaths/min; tachypnea is classified as respiratory rates greater than 60 breaths/min. 

Neonatal respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) is a problem often seen in premature babies. The condition makes it hard for the baby to breathe. The disease is mainly caused by a lack of a slippery substance in the lungs called surfactant. This substance helps the lungs fill with air and keeps the air sacs from deflating.Surfactant is present when the lungs are fully developed.
