Neonatal Respiratory Distress Syndrome (NRDS) is an important cause of mortality and morbidity in premature infants, primarily due to surfactant deficiency. A retrospective study was carried out in tertiary care neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) to analyze clinical profile, morbidity and mortality in our hospital. 150 neonates with gestational age less than37wk with diagnosis of RDS as per clinical investigational guidelines were analyzed. 58% were males while 42% were females. 90% mothers received antenatal steroids out of which 15% babies died while 80% babies died whose mothers didn’t receive it. Total 66% babies received surfactant and mortality among them was 14% while 36% in babies who didn’t receive it.
