TOLEDO SANTANA, Nancy et al. Interventional strategy to diminish mortality by Respiratory Distress Syndrome of the newborn at the Provincial Maternity Hospital, of Matanzas. Rev. Med. Electrón. [online]. 2010, vol.32, n.5, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1684-1824.
In the current investigation we expose the interventional strategy to diminish mortality by Respiratory Difficulty Syndrome of the Newborn, in the Provincial Gynecoobstetric Teaching Hospital Julio Alfonso Medina, of Matanzas. On the basis of the authors' proper experience and applying scientific methods, taking into account the current international literature, we present the results of a detailed study of 48 newborns who suffered the disease and were treated in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit of this institution during 2006 and 2007. The strategic actions resulting from our investigation, together with the recommendations offered by the authors are indispensable for a better management of the patients suffering the disease. We offer new approaches in the treatment of the Respiratory Distress Syndrome of the Newborn on the basis of the usage of a correct sequence of the Continuous Positive Airway Pressure and the porcine Cuban surfactant called SURFACEN. We propose the new term Pulmonary Disease by Congenital Immaturity, to denominate this pathology in the place of the anatomopathologic term of hyaline membrane.
