Pulmonary mechanics may differ in intubated and ventilated infants depending on whether they are measured by a dynamic or passive method. The objective of this study was to compare respiratory mechanics measured by a dynamic technique with those obtained by a single-breath occlusion technique in ventilated newborn infants. Thirty-one preterm and 15 term infants (mean +/- SD: gestational age, 29.3 +/- 2.3 and 39.5 +/- 1.4 weeks; birth weight, 1.2 +/- 0.5 and 3.4 +/- 0.4 kg; postnatal age, 12… CONTINUE READING
