Advances in neonatal critical care, such as surfactant replacement therapy (SRT), have led to significant reductions in neonatal mortality in the United States. However, respiratory distress syndrome (RDS)-related mortality rates remain high, particularly in areas with low resource availability, for example low-income countries. The authors of the present study described practice patterns and treatment modalities in RDS neonates in resource-limited settings and identified potential predictors of mortality.
