15 fetal lambs were instrumented on approximately day 100 (term 147 days) with small catheters in their jugular veins, carotid arteries and tracheas and fine electrodes in their diaphragms and on the lateral surfaces of their thoraces. Measurements were made intermittently of carotid arterial pressure, jugular venous pressure, amniotic fluid pressure, ECG and electrical activity in the diaphragm for 2-hour periods up to day 120. From day 120, two hourly recordings were made daily and samples of… Expand
