What are the risks of surfactant?

0

Delivery of surfactant requires inserting a breathing tube into the baby’s lungs. Complications of this therapy include air leaking into the area between the chest wall and the lungs and air leaking into the sac around the heart. Some infants also develop chronic lung disease.
