A total of 1 997 neonates weighed [greater than or equal to] 1 500 g; 1 570 infants did not receive NCPAP, 154 had a major birth defect, 7 had insufficient information and 5 had NCPAP as a weaning mode from CMV.
For the 26 whose final outcome was recorded, GA, mode of delivery, HIV status, NCPAP and surfactant were some of the factors that were not available in our records.
nCPAP and HFNC are also recommended in the initial resuscitation of children with respiratory compromise or hypoxaemia associated with sepsis or septic shock.
Our center policy is resuscitation according to the Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) (17) and stabilization of the infant using NCPAP for preterm neonates in the delivery room and saving intubation only for those who have apnea or ineffective respiration.

Objective: To analyze the therapeutic effect of pulmonary surfactant (PS) in combination with nasal continuous positive airway pressure (NCPAP) therapy on neonatal respiratory distress syndrome (NRDS).
Enrollment is ongoing in a phase 2b clinical trial in up to 240 premature infants 28 to 32-week gestational age receiving nasal continuous positive airway pressure (nCPAP) for RDS, comparing AEROSURF to infants receiving nCPAP alone.

(1) The continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is one of the most common methods of NRS that has been used in neonatal period, especially via nasal prongs as NCPAP. (1,2) Nowadays, it is generally practiced in neonates with RDS by INSURE method after surfactant administration via endotracheal tube, and then extubation to NCPAP.
