LP33021-4     Fetal lung maturity

DESCRIPTION
  Part: Fetal lung maturity
  Description: The ability of an infant to survive outside the uterus is dependent on proper pulmonary function. Pulmonary surfactant is needed to reduce the surface tension of the air-liquid interface of the alveolar lining, so that alveoli do not collapse upon expiration. Infants born with a deficiency of pulmonary surfactant are at increased risk of developing respiratory distress syndrome (RDS). The incidence of RDS is dependent on the gestational age, with more RDS occurring in younger fetuses.
