Challenging a paradigm: positional changes in ventilation distribution are highly variable in healthy infants and children

Abstract

Current understanding is that infants and children preferentially ventilate non-dependent lungs, a reversal of that of adults, based on studies using krypton-81m ventilation scanning. Participants in these studies had lung disease and were either sedated or ventilated. There is little understanding of the distribution of ventilation in spontaneous breathing healthy infants and children.
