Breathing patterns in preterm infants consist of highly variable interbreath intervals (IBIs) that might originate from nonlinear properties of the respiratory oscillator and its input-output responses to peripheral and central signals. Here, we explore a property of nonlinear control, the potential for large improvement in the stability of breathing using(More)
Prophylactic indomethacin may decrease Severe Intraventricular Hemorrhage (SIVH). Our goal was to develop a predictive model for SIVH using parameters available by six hours of age. De-identified data for preterm infants born ≤ 34 weeks gestational age was abstracted from Vermont Oxford Network database. Using clinical variables available by 6 hrs of age(More)
