Decreased Neonatal Heart Rate Variability (NHRV) was observed in infants dying of RDS over a decade ago; however, only recently instrumentation for its measurement has become available to the clinician. To establish the value of monitoring NHRV, 92 preterm infants were studied (B.W. 750-2500 g., G.A. 28-36 wks.). Each infant was monitored continuously during first 6 hours and for 1 hour at 24, 48 and 168 hours of life. During each hour, NHRV was quantified and related to the following… CONTINUE READING
