Vygons Surfcath™ is made of a thermoplastic material anatomically designed with a 2cm black tip at a 30 degree angle to ensure accuracy and ease of placement. It features an extra soft tip to reduce any damage to vocal cords, its transparent with clear markings for visual confirmation on inserted length and surfactant delivery and it has a semi-rigid but bendable 20cm 6FR tube to enable added manoeuvrability and easier surfactant administration.

Surfcath™ is a catheter designed by neonatologist for the administration of surfactant using the LISA Method without Magill forceps. LISA is a less invasive surfactant administration technique, this avoids obstruction of the airways, allowing spontaneous breathing. Surfcath™ is for the treatment of premature or full-term high-risk neonates or with respiratory distress syndrome caused by pulmonary surfactant deficiency (hyaline membrane disease – HMD).
