Effects of moderate hyperbilirubinemia on nutritive swallowing and swallowing-breathing coordination in preterm lambs
Background: Hyperbilirubinemia (HB) occurs in 90% of preterm newborns. HB induces acute neurological disorders (somnolence, abnormal tone, feeding difficulties, auditory dysfunction) and alterations in respiratory ...
Laryngeal muscle activity during nasal high frequency oscillatory ventilation in non-sedated newborn lambs
