Caption: Neonatal baby receiving intensive care in an incubator following a premature birth after a term of 30 weeks. The infant is suffering from hylaine membrane disease, also known as respiratory distress syndrome, a condition in which the lungs do not expand properly. Respiratory distress syndrome arises due to a lack of surfactant substance in the lungs & results in intensely laboured, shallow breathing. Surfactant is a wetting agent that is secreted by cells lining the air sacs in the lungs. Biopsy examination reveals the presence of hyaline material in the collapsed air sacs of the lungs. Photographed at a Maternity Hospital in Kuwait.
