Abstract

Earlier attempts to deliver effective lung doses of surfactant by aerosolization were unsuccessful, mostly because of technical shortcomings. We aimed at quantifying the lung deposition of poractant alfa with a new supraglottic delivery system for surfactant atomization in an experimental neonatal model.
