Radiotelemetric recordings have been made in a series of newborn lambs with implanted electrodes and transducers and an external back-pack transmitter. Cardiac, respiratory and behavioral data have been gathered. These data have been analysed firstly with respect to age. The cardiac and respiratory data have then been related to both sleep state and age. An unexpected rise in both heart and respiratory rates was found after birth and marked differences were obvious in respiratory control in REM sleep states.
