During active sleep, neonates exhibit asynchronous chest wall movements, which have been associated with a small but significant decrease in oxygenation. To determine the effects of maturation and residual chronic lung disease on both these phenomena, we studied 11 preterm infants with resolving bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) and compared these infants to ten healthy preterm infants all at time of discharge. Synchrony of chest wall (upper rib cage and abdominal) movements, sleep state, O2… CONTINUE READING
