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.
