Development of respiratory chemoreflexes in response to alternations of fractional inspired oxygen in the newborn infant.

Abstract

1. We studied the reflex respiratory response to breath-by-breath alternations of fractional inspired oxygen (FI,O2) in full-term human infants delivered either vaginally or by caesarian section at 3-10 h (n = 6), 12-24 h (n = 12), 24-48 h (n = 18), 3-4 days (n = 21) and 5-8 days (n = 7) postnatally. 2. Respiration was measured by inductance plethysmography… (More)
