Abstract Forward movement of intestinal nutrients is achieved by motor activity. Motor activity patterns are "abnormal" in adults as well as preterm infants who display intolerance to enteral feedings. Manometrics can be used diagnostically and prospectively to identify infants at risk for feeding intolerance.
