Sleep architecture was assessed under different environmental temperatures in 10 full-term and 10 preterm infants who reached term. Five 30-min periods of baseline, normothermia heating, peak temperature, cooling and normothermia were analysed. A significant decrease in the proportion of active sleep (AS) and an increase in quiet sleep (QS) was noted among the full-term infants during the heating and peak temperature conditions, whereas, among the preterm infants, a similarly significant difference was noted during the heating and cooling stages of the study, but not during the stage of peak temperature. This differential response to environmental hyperthermia is possibly related to maturational factors. This phenomenon may be related to the increased vulnerability of low birth weight infants to apnoea and sudden infant death syndrome.
