Infant study results to be presented in Aspen

Aspen Times staff report
Aspen, CO Colorado

ASPEN – The results of a research study involving local newborns will be presented Thursday, Jan. 27 at Aspen Valley Hospital.

Infants born at AVH between Aug. 8, 2008 and Jan. 31, 2009 were among the participants in the study, which focuses on oxygen saturation levels at high altitude. The research was done by Brigham Women’s Hospital of Salt Lake City with the goal of determining “normal” saturation rates for healthy babies born at altitude.

Findings include data from AVH and other high-altitude hospitals, including Yampa Valley Medical Center in Steamboat Springs. Tracy Line, neonatal nurse practitioner at Yampa Valley, will present the information at 7 p.m. in the Oden Conference Center at AVH. The public is welcome.
