The increasing availability of appliances for measuring lung function in infants may allow clinical and epidemiological applications. The aim of the present study was to establish reference values for tidal breathing lung function in awake newborn infants and to investigate potential sources of variability. Tidal flow-volume loops were measured in 803 awake, healthy infants (427 males and 376 females) and passive respiratory mechanics (single-breath occlusion technique) in 664. Mean postnatal… CONTINUE READING
