We tested the hypothesis of whether the reduced ventilatory response to CO2 in preterm as compared to term infants is related to primary central unresponsiveness, or to mechanical impairment of the respiratory pump. Eleven preterm (n = 19; gestational age 32 +/- 0.4 wk) and 14 term (n = 24; GA 40 +/- 0.3 wk) infants were studied. Minute integrated… CONTINUE READING
