How Curosurf Injection works

Curosurf 120mg injection is the surfactant given to premature babies to protect their lungs. The surfactant is a fatty substance that coats the inside or lining of the air sacs in the lungs. This coating prevents the air sacs from collapsing and sticking together when air leaves the lungs. The surfactant is produced by babies only after the 8th month of pregnancy.
