Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The development of the transdermal electrical potential (TDP) with postnatal age was studied in neonates born at gestational ages of 25 to 42 wk. The TDP of neonates born at less than 28 wk gestational age was of similar magnitude over the whole skin surface when measured in the first 5 d of life (mean value -5.4 mV; skin surface negative with respect to s.c. tissues). The TDP increased progressively with increasing gestational and postnatal age. The rate of increase of the TDP with postmenstrual age was not accelerated in neonates born prematurely. TDP values of infants born at term were lower than those of adults, but the sites of high and low TDP were similar in both term infants and adults.
