Summary of "The use of less invasive surfactant administration (LISA) in the United States with review of the literature."

The majority of extremely low gestational age neonates undergo intubation for surfactant therapy. Less invasive surfactant administration (LISA) uses a thin catheter inserted into the trachea to deliver the surfactant. During the procedure, the infant is breathing spontaneously while supported with continuous positive airway pressure. Although LISA is widely adapted in Europe and Australia, the rate of LISA use in the United States is unknown.
