Effects of low humidity on small premature infants in servocontrol incubators. II. Increased severity of apnea.

Abstract

Apneic spells were recorded in 8 of 19 premature infants nursed in high and low humidity alternately in servocontrol incubators. A significantly greater proportion of severe apnea occurred in low than in high humidity. It is postulated that this frequency and severity was due to the increased (as well as widely fluctuating) ambient temperature during low… (More)
