The first year of human life: Nutritive transfer rates were calculated as the total milk transferred divided by the total duration of NS. Development of the coordination of suck-pharyngeal swallow In earlier studies, we examined the maturation of the interactions between suck-pharyngeal swallow and pharyngeal swallow-respiration. Examples of potential sources of stress:. Stronger peak vacuum was related to a slower suck rate for both the breast and teat, and this effect was greater for the teat interaction. Chantal LauPhD. Both the threshold vacuum required for milk removal and flow rate of the teat are likely factors that have resulted in lower vacuums being applied by the infant during bottle feeding. Endurance is compromised by many disease processes that are more common in LBW infants.
