Endocrine effects of ventilation, oxygenation and cord occlusion in near-term fetal sheep.

Abstract

The transition from fetal to newborn life is associated with significant endocrine changes. Some of these changes may be triggered by the effects of spontaneous respiration, increased oxygenation and removal of the placental circulation at birth. We, therefore, studied endocrine function during in utero ventilation, oxygenation and cord occlusion, in nine… (More)
