    The article discusses psychological and clinical effects of nasal intermittent positive pressure ventilation (N-IPPV) in pre term infants. It mentions that N-IPPV is better than nasal continuous positive airway pressure (N-CPAP) in reducing the chances of apnoea in pre mature infants. It further...

    Apnea of prematurity (AOP) is a common problem affecting premature infants, likely secondary to a 'physiologic' immaturity of respiratory control that may be exacerbated by neonatal disease. These include altered ventilatory responses to hypoxia, hypercapnia, and altered sleep states, while the...

Obstructive sleep apnoea is usually caused by upper airway obstruction. Less common is central sleep apnoea, resulting from...
