ABSTRACT. Estimates of average daily energy expenditure and minimal observed oxygen consumption are commonly used to characterize the energy metabolism of neonates. Yet, the errors inherent in these estimates have not been defined. Using measurements of oxygen consumption and carbon dioxide production made in healthy growing low birth weight infants during eight consecutive 3-h interfeeding epochs, we have determined the variability in the mean oxygen consumption, carbon dioxide production… CONTINUE READING
