We asked if the amount of SP-B (range 37-410 micrograms/ml) in surfactants used to treat preterm lambs at 123 days of gestation correlated with postnatal lung function or the SP-B content of surfactant recovered by alveolar washes after 10 h ventilation. Ventilation was initiated using a low tidal volume strategy to minimize early lung injury. There were small increases in compliance for the lambs treated with surfactants containing more than 37 micrograms/ml SP-B and an increased lung volume for lambs treated with a surfactant containing 385 micrograms/ml/ml relative to the surfactant containing 37 micrograms/ml SP-B. The amount of SP-B in the surfactant used for treatment correlated linearly with the amount of SP-B in the surfactant recovered from the lambs (r = 0.95, p < 0.001). Albumin leak from the vasculature to the airspace was low as was total protein in alveolar washes, indicating minimal lung injury. The SP-B content of surfactant (from 37 to 410 micrograms/ml) had minimal effects on postnatal lung function over a 10-hour study period in lambs ventilated in a manner to minimize lung injury.
