Neonatal Physiological Measurements documents the proceedings of the Second International Conference on Fetal and Neonatal Physiological Measurements. The book is organized into eight parts. The papers in Part I deal with general topics on the monitoring of newborn infants. Part II presents studies on cerebral hemodynamics. Part III focuses on blood gas analysis. Part IV examines respiratory measurements while Part V presents investigations into sudden infant death syndrome. Part VII covers applications of nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. Part VIII takes up neonatal monitoring technologies for developing countries. Part VIII, the Appendix, contains two keynote speeches. The first discusses the measurement of human umbilical venous blood flow in utero. The second paper discusses the measurement of fetal heart rate variation.
