In Mexico, the mortality in minors than 1 year old is 14.1 for every 1000 live births. The main causes are issues during the perinatal period including the Neonatal Respiratory Distress Syndrome (NRDS). The median gestational age of these patients is 29.1 weeks of gestation, weight of 1000 grams, and with the use of surfactants and mechanical ventilation as the treatment of choice. For this group, it is important to create an environment which favors integrity; for example with strategies such as skin-to-skin contact.
