Transcutaneous oxygen tension (tcPO2) was continuously monitored, and behavioral state was evaluated in a group of 10 normal preterm infants and 10 normal term infants. In the preterm infant group, birth weight was 1505 +/- 154 g, gestational age was 32.3 +/- 2.3 wk, and postnatal age was 8.4 +/- 5.1 days (mean +/- S.D.). In the term infant group, birth(More)
Researchers and clinicians have suggested that overuse injuries to the lower back and lower extremities of figure skaters may be associated with the repeated high impact forces sustained during jump landings. Our primary aim was to compare the vertical ground reaction forces (GRFs) in freestyle figure skaters (n = 26) and non-skaters (n = 18) for the same(More)
