Abstract

The ventilatory response of infants of mothers who smoke and misuse substances and controls to carbon dioxide was assessed at 6-12 weeks and the perinatal period. Infants of mothers who smoke and misuse substances had a dampened response at the peak age of sudden infant death syndrome, greater than in the perinatal period.
