Respiratory Distress Syndrome

Respiratory distress syndrome, sometimes referred to as "hyaline membrane disease," is seen in the surfactant-deficient preterm infant. RDS is also seen in the infant of a diabetic mother delivered before 38 weeks' gestation. These infants present with respiratory distress, including tachypnea, grunting, and retractions. They often become cyanotic as the disease worsens. The preterm infant is at higher risk for developing GBS sepsis, and the symptoms of both diseases are similar, as are the early radiographic findings. Thus, if symptomatic, the preterm infant should receive antibiotic therapy.
