The observations have been related to the weight of the infant, and in some instances to the body surface. It is hoped that a contribution toward a better understanding of the normal trend and range of the respiration of the newborn infant during sleep will be obtained from this material so that a proper interpretation may be made when a stimulating gas is administered.
