About

This is a prospective observational cohort study conducted in the mother-baby unit at ChristianaCare. The study is designed to assess work of breathing indices and oxygen saturation stability at discharge in full-term infants. Data obtained will be used to perform a comparative analysis on work of breathing data for premature infants obtained from our previous study. We hypothesize full term (≥37 weeks gestation) infants have decreased work of breathing indices (i.e., phase angle) compared to premature infants (born 26-37 weeks gestation) at discharge.
