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).
