Laryngeal muscle activity during nasal high frequency oscillatory ventilation in non-sedated newborn lambs
Background: We have previously shown that nasal pressure support ventilation (nPSV) can lead to an active inspiratory laryngeal narrowing in lambs. This, in turn, can limit lung ventilation and divert air into the ...
Effects of postnatal environmental tobacco smoke on non-nutritive swallowing-breathing coordination in newborn lambs
While prenatal environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) exposure is a well-known risk factor for sudden infant death syndrome, the effect of postnatal ETS exposure is less clear. The objective of this study was to investigate the ...
Effects of reflux laryngitis on laryngeal chemoreflexes in newborn lambs
It has been suggested that reflux laryngitis (RL) is involved in apneas-bradycardias of the newborn. The aim of the present study was to develop a unique RL model in newborn lambs to test the hypothesis that RL enhances ...
Radio telemetry devices to monitor breathing in non-sedated animals
Radio telemetry equipment has significantly improved over the last 10-15 years and is increasingly being used in research for monitoring a variety of physiological parameters in non-sedated animals. The aim of this review ...
