Abstract Surfactant whether given prophylactically in the delivery room or to babies with established respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) reduces the severity of RDS, incidence of air leaks and pneumothorax and, most importantly, neonatal death. Despite being the most intensively studied intervention in neonatal medicine, there is still debate among neonatologists regarding the best preparations, the optimal dose and mode of administration and when best to intervene with surfactant. European Consensus Guidelines on the management of RDS have been developed and updated twice since 2007 reflecting changes in practice as new evidence emerges and in this article we summarize current opinion regarding optimal surfactant use in the present era of non-invasive respiratory support.
