Abstract

We evaluated the effect of prone and supine position on cerebral blood flow (CBF) in stable preterm infants. CBF, PO 2, and PCO 2 were measured in the two positions. Peripheral oxygenation increased and CBF decreased in prone position. We speculate that CBF autoregulation may compensate for increased peripheral oxygenation, by decreasing CBF.
