Premature infants display increased noxious evoked neuronal activity in the brain compared to healthy age-matched term-born infants

Abstract:

This study demonstrates that infants who are born prematurely and who have experienced at least 40 days of intensive or special care have increased brain neuronal responses to noxious stimuli compared to healthy newborns at the same postmenstrual age. We have measured evoked potentials generated by noxious clinically-essential heel lances in infants born at term (8 infants; born 37–40 weeks) and in infants born prematurely (7 infants; born 24–32 weeks) who had reached the same postmenstrual a...
