Abstract

Lung lavage using two aliquots of 15 mL/kg of dilute surfactant was performed in 30 ventilated infants with severe meconium aspiration syndrome (MAS). Mean recovery of instilled lavage ?uid was 46 , with greater fluid return associated with lower mean airway pressure at 24 h and a shorter duration of respiratory support.
