AIM: There has been an increased use of heated humidified high flow nasal canula (HFNC) in premature babies (PBs) admitted to our neonatal unit. The aim of this study is to identify clinical characteristics in PBs < 29 weeks gestational age (GA) that distinguish between those who did not or did receive HFNC. METHODS: This study compared prospectively collected data from 2010 to 2012. Comparisons were undertaken between PBs<29 weeks GA who received continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP: 44/72 (61...

Because of costs and labor-intensity it is, however, performed last in graded diagnostic protocols that often involve respiratory pressure measurements via nasal canula as an alternative sensitive method for SDB detection. MicroMESAM, a newly developed screening device based on this method, allows automated analysis of apnoeas, hypopnoeas and snoring. AIM AND METHODS: To validate the device, we first compared signal quality of MicroMESAM flow-time curves with those generated by a pneumotachograph...
