Lung surfactants are made from animal lung extract and contain phospholipids. Natural surfactant is produced by the alveolar cells in the lungs and line mainly the alveoli and small bronchioles, and prevents the alveoli from collapsing.
Lung surfactant makes it easier for oxygen to penetrate the lung surface lining and move into the blood. lung surfactant: a detergent-like agent that reduces the surface tension of the liquid film covering the inner lining of the pulmonary alveoli.
As an alveolus becomes smaller during expiration, the surfactant becomes more concentrated, further reducing the surface tension and preventing alveolar collapse.

Summary Pulmonary surfactant is a complex mixture of specific lipids, proteins and carbohydrates, which is produced in the lungs by type II alveolar epithelial cells. The mixture is surface active and acts to decrease surface tension at the air–liquid interface of the alveoli.
The presence of such molecules with surface activity had been suspected since the early s Cited by: 4. "This book will be welcomed by neonatologists, pediatric endocrinologists consulting on neonatal wards, obstetricians and last but not least pulmonologists.
To the best of my knowledge it brings together for the the first time the latest knowledge on the role of hormones especially glucocorticoids on lung development and surfactant production."3/5(1).

Lung Surfactant Function and Disorder - CRC Press Book The only source to describe the lung surfactant as a complex membranous system, this guide analyzes lung surfactant function from the aspects of molecular biology, biophysics, membrane science, and surface and interface analysis and reviews the latest basic and clinical issues relating to.
The lung surfactant administered endotracheally is distributed to the lung lobes, distal airways, and alveolar spaces. As the lung surfactant is distributed to the bronchi, bronchioles, and alveoli after administration in the upper airway, its concentration is highest at the alveolar air-fluid interface where it remains as a monolayer.

Editorial Reviews. Reviewer: Arun K. Pramanik, MD (Louisiana State University Medical Center) Description: The contributors to this 84th volume in the series Lung Biology in Health and Disease are experts in basic sciences of pulmonary surfactant or clinicians involved in the management of patients with surfactant deficiency, particularly critically ill premature : Taylor And Francis.
This lung abnormality has interested many scientists and clinicians and has led to a greater understanding of the biochemistry of the lung and to the elucidation of the components of lung surfactant.
To understand the function of lung surfactant, it is appropriate to consider first the overall gross anatomy of the lung (Fig. 9–1).Author: Guido V. Marinetti. Pulmonary surfactant is a surface active material composed of both lipids and proteins that is produced by alveolar type II pneumocytes.
Abnormalities of surfactant in the immature lung or in the acutely inflamed mature lung are well described. However, in a variety of subacute diseases of the mature lung, abnormalities of lung surfactant may also be of Cited by: This perspective tells the story of the discovery, characterization, and understanding of the surfactant system of the lung; of how investigators from many disciplines studied the system, stimulated by the demonstration of surfactant deficiency in respiratory distress syndrome of the newborn; and of how the resulting knowledge formed a basis for highly successful surfactant.
While lung surfactant replacement therapy has been of great help, itneeds improvement in order to treat infants more effectively, in a more refinedway, and to begin to address adult respiratory.
Phospholipids adsorb rapidly to the surface of the air:liquid interface of the lung lumen and modify the surface tension within the alveoli. Surfactant-associated proteins, particularly SP-B, appear to be essential in binding, stabilizing, spreading, and. This book reflects the recent surge of interest in the pathophysiology, diagnosis and treatment of respiratory distress syndrome, in both neonates and adults, which has led to an increased understanding of the function of the lung's surfactant system.
The book covers relevant maturational events of the fetal lung, the proteins associated with. Surfactant prevents the lungs from collapsing by reducing surface tension throughout the lungs.
Surface tension is the main force that is present within the alveoli of the lungs. Without surfactant, the surface tension present in the lungs causes the alveoli to stick together during expiration, which causes both lungs to collapse.
Lung surfactant deficiencies are associated with a range of lung problems including oxygen starvation, lung collapse and pulmonary edema . Patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) often have lung surfactant that lacks the full range of surface tension modulation upon compression .
The surfactant reduces surface tension within all alveoli through hydrophilic and hydrophobic forces. Insufficient pulmonary surfactant in the alveoli can contribute to atelectasis (collapse of part or all of the lung). Premature infants often don’t have the capacity to produce enough surfactant to survive on their own.
Research: Biophysical Study of Lung Surfactant Lung/pulmonary surfactant is a phospholipid-protein complex that lines a thin film at the air-water interface of the lung.
The surfactant film of the lung plays a dual role of surface tension reduction and host defense against inhaled pathogens and particles. Time: A baby with mild RDS may receive no special treatment other than close monitoring for the first few days of life until the lungs start to make surfactant.
Respiratory support: Babies with moderate to severe RDS may need help breathing or oxygenating their blood. Respiratory support often comes in the form of a nasal cannula, continuous positive airway. Calf lung surfactant extract (no dose standardization) 26).

Surfactant contains four associated proteins, surfactant protein (SP)-A, SP-B, SP-C, and SP-D. Two of these proteins, SP-A and SP-D, are hydrophilic, and the others are hydrophobic ().SP-A and SP-D are members of a family of innate immune proteins, termed collectins (10, 11).These proteins have in common an NH 2-terminal collagen-like region and a C-terminal lectin domain Cited by: Lung surfactant, a lipo-protein complex, is a highly surface-active material found in the fluid lining the air-liquid interface of the alveolar surface.

function Surfactant plays a dual function: Prevent alveolar collapse during breathing cycle Alveoli are coated with lung surfactant in order to reduce the surface tension of water, thus preventing collapse (atelectasis) upon exhalation and decreasing the force necessary to expand the alveoli upon inhalation.

It can also be manufactured synthetically. Purpose Surfactant reduces the surface tension of fluid in the lungs and helps make the small air sacs in the lungs (alveoli) more stable.
