Assessment of body temperature control in preterm infants

  • Research questions/goals:In this project we are looking at time series of body temperature measurements in infants to learn more about the relationship between physiological development and temperature regulation mechanisms.
  • Current main results and/or publications: We finished recruiting participants, and a large amount of measurements have been successfully completed. The collected time series of body temperature measurements have been analyzed. Furthermore, we have found associations between some of the time-series analysis parameters and clinical, particularly developmental, magnitudes. The results of this analysis have been recently published.
    Currently, we are analyzing this data set from a control theoretical point of view.
