Abstract

Thirty-four very low birth weight infants, whose clinical data were already given (Gortner et al. this book) were treated with a bovine surfactant intratracheally (SF-RI 1, Dr. Karl Thomae GmbH, FRG). Mechanical ventilation was provided by time-cycled, pressure-limited ventilators. Peak inspiratory pressure (PIP) and positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) were adjusted in order to keep paO2 between 40–60 mm Hg and paCO2 between 40–45 mm Hg. Routinely, respiratory rate was 100/min with an inspiratory time of 0.2 and an expiratory time of 0.4 s.
