Feeding difficulties and airway related consequences contribute significantly to the infant mortality and morbidity. Some of these problems may be dependent on neural control and muscular function. Prematurity, congenital anomalies and perinatal depression represent three important conditions in infants, that may have feeding and airway difficulties.Development of motility of the foregut and the adaptation during normal and disease in developing infants is unclear.
With the aid of small clinical research funding from the NIDDK, in this proposal, we have developed methods to safely evaluate foregut motility in relation to breathing among high risk infants. We are using simultaneous esophageal motility studies, swallowing and respiratory measurements in this evaluation.

In Malawi in 2014, less than 20% of HIV-exposed infants received an EID test in the first two months of life and only 30% of HIV-infected children were on ART. We, therefore, sought to understand the ...
Diseases that occur in PREMATURE INFANTS.
A human infant born before 37 weeks of GESTATION.
A human infant born before 28 weeks of GESTATION.
Onset of OBSTETRIC LABOR before term (TERM BIRTH) but usually after the FETUS has become viable. In humans, it occurs sometime during the 29th through 38th week of PREGNANCY. TOCOLYSIS inhibits premature labor and can prevent the BIRTH of premature infants (INFANT, PREMATURE).
A type of cardiac arrhythmia with premature contractions of the HEART VENTRICLES. It is characterized by the premature QRS complex on ECG that is of abnormal shape and great duration (generally >129 msec). It is the most common form of all cardiac arrhythmias. Premature ventricular complexes have no clinical significance except in concurrence with heart diseases.
