Prematurity-Related Ventilatory Control (Pre-Vent): Role in Respiratory Outcomes - Leadership and Data Coordinating Center (LDCC) (U01)
The objective of this program is to investigate mechanisms of ventilatory control (e.g. chemoreceptor, mechanoreceptor, developmental, etc.) that contribute to instability of oxygenation and risk of morbidity and mortality in premature infants during and after the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) using a prospective observational cohort. This is an important step toward the identification of new opportunities for preventive interventions for high risk premature infants.
