We conducted a reproducibility study of the alternating breath test (ABT) for assessing peripheral chemoreceptor function in infants. The ABT delivers a rapid hypoxic stimulus to the peripheral chemoreceptors with breath-by-breath alternations of the inspired O2 fraction. The reproducibility of the ABT performed on a single occasion has not been extensively(More)
Helium dilution maneuver is used to determine the functional residual capacity (FRC) 14 newborns ages 1-5 mo. The model equation describes the changing alveolar fractions of He and the ventilation promoted by a rebreathing procedure that does not exceed 40 s. The model does not involve the volume of the rebreathing bag usually needed when applying(More)
