The newborn lamb as a new model for studying gastroesophageal reflux
We aimed to determine whether the newborn lamb at term is a valid model for studying gastroesophageal reflux. Seven bottle-fed lambs, ages 2 to 3 days, underwent esophageal multichannel intraluminal impedance-pH monitoring ...
Effects of nasal continuous positive airway pressure on nutritive swallowing in lambs
Current knowledge suggests that, to be successful, oral feeding in preterm infants should be initiated as soon as possible, often at an age where immature respiration still requires ventilatory support in the form of nasal ...
Absence of inspiratory laryngeal constrictor muscle activity during nasal neurally adjusted ventilatory assist in newborn lambs
It has been demonstrated that a progressive increase in nasal pressure support ventilation (nPSV) leads to an active inspiratory glottal closure in non-sedated newborn lambs, which limits lung ventilation (24, 33). Unlike ...
