From Surviving to Thriving Boosting the Oral Feeding Performance of Premature Babies – CHANTAL LAU, PHD BAYLOR COLLEGE OF MEDICINE

Jul 5, 2018 | behavioural sciences, health and medicine

The survival rates of premature babies are increasing all the time, but many struggle to develop proper oral feeding skills. This can result in longer hospital stays due to delayed development of important skills, such as swallowing and proper coordination of swallow and breathing to minimise milk penetration into the lungs. Professor Chantal Lau, Adjunct Associate Professor of Pediatrics at the Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, USA has been researching why these babies have difficulties feeding by mouth and what can be done to help them.
