Absence of effect of nasal continuous positive-airway pressure on the esophageal phase of nutritive swallowing in newborn lambs
Objectives: It is presently recommended that oral feeding be started in premature infants as soon as possible, often at an age at which nasal continuous positive airway pressure (nCPAP) is still required for ventilatory ...
Milk temperature influences esophageal motility in the newborn lamb
Esophageal dysmotility is common in infants. We aimed to evaluate the influence of milk temperature on esophageal motility using multichannel intraluminal impedance-pH monitoring (MII-pH). Five healthy lambs, ages 2 to 3 ...
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 ...
