Heart rate (HR) changes associated with apnoea (> 3 s) were analysed in 10 preterm infants (30.6 +/- 1.5 weeks) at post-conceptional age of 40 +/- 1.5 weeks and 10 full-term (FT) infants (39 +/- 1 weeks) before, during and after exposure to increased environmental temperature (5 degrees C above normothermia). A significantly increased HR was found in the study group during the baseline (normothermia), heating, cooling and final normothermic phase compared with the control infants. No significant difference was found between the groups during the hyperthermic stage. A significant relative increase in HR was found among the preterm infants but not among FT infants during central apnoea at the hyperthermia phase. Our results indicate that HR control during apnoea in preterm infants is more labile then among FT infants while being exposed to increased environmental temperature.
