Abstract

Heart rate variability is being investigated in newborn infants suffering from idiopathic respiratory distress syndrome (IRDS). An initial series of measurements of heart rate variability confirmed that infants with IRDS have reduced levels of variability, and that loss of variability is more marked in infants with severe IRDS requiring mechanical ventilation. A series of statistical and frequency parameters have been devised to model the variability, and are suitable for prediction of ventilation needs as well as for discrimination between survivors and nonsurvivors.
