Caption: Life-support equipments surrounds an incubator holding a premature baby, born after a term of 34 weeks. The infant is suffering from respiratory distress syndrome, also called hyaline membrane disease, a condition in which the lungs do not expand properly. Respiratory distress syndrome arises due to the lack of surfactant in the lungs, a substance that serves to reduce the surface tension of the air sacs & results in intensely laboured, shallow breathing. Biopsy examination reveals the presence of hyaline material in the collapsed air sacs of the lungs. Photographed at a Maternity Hospital in Kuwait.
