Abstract

The care of infants with Robin sequence is discussed with special reference to upper airway obstruction and feeding difficulties. The use of nasopharyngeal tubes is recommended initially to alleviate the immediate consequences of hypoxia. Modifications in feeding procedures are minor and involve enlarging the hole in the nipple and keeping the nipple and infant positioned appropriately.
