Abstract

Less invasive surfactant administration methods without laryngoscopy and endotracheal catheterization include delivery via laryngeal mask airway, pharyngeal instillation, and aerosolization. These less invasive techniques are promising and have several advantages over INSURE (Intubation-Surfactant-Extubation) and thin catheter techniques. The objective of this review is to discuss the requisites, techniques, short-term outcomes, and adverse events associated with these methods.
