Brief description Male babies born significantly premature are up to twice likely to die than females. The reasons for this are unknown. This study will determine the cardiovascular differences in male and female babies born preterm and will examine how they adapt over the first 5 days. Defining the mechanisms that contribute to the difference in mortality between the sexes will also show how changes starting around birth affect the way the blood pressure system functions for life, a major lifetime stroke risk.
