To obtain information about intestinal hemodynamics of healthy neonates, the authors assessed velocity and volume of blood flow with duplex Doppler sonography in the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) in 91 stable preterm and term neonates. Blood flow velocity in the SMA and estimated volume blood flow increased linearly with gestational age and increasing body weight. The mean estimated volume blood flow (+/- standard deviation) was 43 mL/kg/min +/- 13 and did not depend on differences in body… CONTINUE READING
