  Purpose
This is a study examining repeatability and feasibility of a new method for measurement of lung function in babies. A flexible vest is placed around the torso of the baby, and changes in tidal volume and flow is measured. The study will enable a better understanding of the usefulness of this equipment in a neonatal intensive care unit. The equipment is made by VOLUSENSE Norway AS, and marketed under the name FloRight. The equipment is owned by Volusense Norway AS during the study period.
