Survanta 200mg Injection (Beractant) is a prescription medicine used to treat the symptoms of respiratory distress syndrome in premature babies. It is a natural surfactant that is extracted from bovine lungs. Survanta 200mg Injection is primarily indicated for babies and premature infants with a bodyweight of 1250g and below. It is used to treat severe breathing difficulties in babies, due to respiratory distress syndrome. Premature babies, in particular, are at a huge risk of developing respiratory distress syndrome due to inadequate production of a substance called surfactant by the lungs.
Uses of Survanta 200mg Injection:
- To prevent or treat respiratory distress syndrome in premature babies whose lungs have not fully developed
How Survanta 200mg Injection works:
Surfactants play a huge role in preventing the lungs from sticking together and reduces the surface tension in the alveoli of the lungs (air sacs where the oxygen exchange happens), which inturn facilitates normal breathing. Survanta 200mg Injection mimics the body's natural surfactant to promote normal breathing in babies.
Interaction with other drugs:
Inform your doctor about any medications your baby is taking or have taken before the treatment.
Store in a refrigerator (2-8°C). Do not warm and return it to the refrigerator more than once. Protect it from light and do not shake it. For single time use only.
