OBJECTIVE To determine if differences in respiratory muscle strength could explain any posture related effects on oxygenation in convalescent neonates. METHODS Infants were examined in three postures: supine, supine with head up tilt of 45 degrees, and prone. A subsequent study was performed to determine the influence of head position in the supine posture. In each posture/head position, oxygen saturation (SaO2) was determined and respiratory muscle strength assessed by measurement of the… CONTINUE READING
