Abstract

UNLABELLED: There are no data describing how very preterm infants breathe spontaneously immediately after birth. We studied a convenience sample of spontaneously breathing infants 60 /min). Immediately after birth, most very preterm infants, treated with continuous positive airway pressure, frequently prolong their expiration by braking the expiratory flow. ABBREVIATION: :
