Abstract
WITH THE INCREASING NUMBER OF PREMATURE INFANTS SURVIVING TO REACH BPD UNITS, ONE WONDERS HOW LONG THE SYSTEM CAN SURVIVE THE EXTREMELY HIGH COST OF LONG TERM CARE (ABOUT $700,000/YEAR IN THE BPD UNIT AND $300,000/YEAR FOR HOME CARE). ONE POSSIBLE ANSWER IS RELIABLE MONITORING OF PHYSIOLOGICAL VARIABLES WHICH PERMIT 1) MORE EFFECTIVE RESPIRATORY MANAGEMENT AND 2) MANAGEMENT BY LESS SOPHISTICATED CARE GIVERS (INCLUDING PARENTS), WHICH COULD HAVE A LARGE IMPACT TOWARD MOVING PATIENTS TO HOME CARE MUCH EARLIER AS WELL AS FURTHER REDUCING THE COST OF HOME CARE.

MONITORING. THIS GRANT ADDRESSES THE DEVELOPMENT OF A NON-INVASIVE PACO2,
