Increased O2 consumption and energy loss in premature infants following medical care procedures.


Oxygen consumption (VO2) and CO2 production (VCO2) were measured continuously for 24 h in 10 premature infants during their ongoing nursing care. Using a flow-through technique, the total VO2 and VCO2 over a given period of time were determined from the area under the O2-and CO2-concentration-time curve of the mixed expired gas. Following chest… (More)
