A newborn with Hirschsprung's disease in the neonatal intensive care unit presents with respiratory failure. ABGs show a mildly elevated PaCO2 during wakefulness and markedly elevated PaCO2 during non-REM sleep. He seems to forget to breathe when sleeping. You test him with inhalation of CO2 and he has no respiratory discomfort.
