Overview

This volume provides a thorough examination of breathing in the fetus and newborn, analyzing physiology, pathophysiology, and clinical applications. The authors review recent research into fetal breathing, transitional processes at birth, and control of post-natal breathing. They also discuss the role of pathophysiological processes in the etiology of respiratory disease, and explore important new developments in diagnosis and treatment.
