BACKGROUND Lung function data in healthy newborn infants are scarce largely due to lack of suitable techniques, although data for developmental and prenatal exposure studies are much needed. We have modified the forced oscillation technique (FOT) for the measurement of respiratory mechanical impedance (Zrs) in unsedated sleeping infants in the first 3 days of life. METHODS Zrs was measured during 30-s epochs of quiet sleep in term neonates born via spontaneous vaginal delivery with a non… CONTINUE READING
