Neonatal respiratory distress: A simple cradle for mincrognathia and glossoptosis

  • J. F. Camilla Tulloch (a1) and J. M. Mcfarlane (a1)


Infants born with micrognathia and glossoptosis may present as a grave emergency, with recurrent bouts of respiratory distress and cyanosis. The management of this condition is discussed, with particular reference to conservative measures. A new cradle has been designed to facilitate the management of these children during the neo-natal period.
