Hello Nurrlatifah,


Thank you for the question.


RDS or hydro-distress syndrome in infants usually occur when the baby's lungs have not developed properly. When the lungs are not fully developed, the lungs still lack a substance called surfactant which functions to lubricate and help the lungs to expand to be filled with air. This condition usually occurs in premature babies born less than 37-39 weeks of gestational age. Besides this condition is also influenced by factors such as a history of RDS in a baby's sister, a history of diabetes in the mother, twin pregnancies, and disorders during childbirth.


RDS and its relationship with excess phlegm can be related to the condition of lung surfactant deficiency in RDS can cause changes in the function of mucus or natural 'phlegm' in the respiratory system including in the lungs, so that the mucus is difficult to remove and causes blockage in the pernapasa channel . Thus, the symptoms that appear are difficult breathing disorders, can be characterized by the baby not breathing, the baby is breathing fast and shallow, the nasal lobes are large, the sound of groans when breathing, and there is a pull of the chest wall when breathing, in the form of bluish skin and mucous membranes such as the mouth .


RDS is treated by handling the respiratory disorders of the baby either by giving an oxygen or other breathing aid, or giving a surfactant injection to the baby.


Hopefully this information can help.


Regards.
