late surfactant administration

Recommended Posts

We have a 32 week gestation 1.6kg baby referred from another hospital at 60 hours of age. No antenatal steroids given. CXR on day 1 and 2 show established RDS. On arrival, baby on SIMV 24/5 rate 50/minute Ti 0.35 FiO2 60%. Would you suggest surfactant administration at this age? Cost of surfactant is a big issue and I would give only if it is likely to be beneficial. Please opine.
