Överskrift Differential effects of massage and heelstick procedures on transcutaneous oxygen tension in preterm neonates.
Beskrivning Investigated the effects of heelsticks and tactile-kinesthetic massage on transcutaneous oxygen tension (TcPO-sub-2) in 47 stabilized preterm neonates (average gestational age 30 wks). During the heelstick procedure, TcPO-sub-2 significantly declined an average of 14 mmHg. When compared with the tactile-kinesthetic massage, TcPO-sub-2 levels during the heelstick were significantly lower than during the stimulation. Mean TcPO-sub-2 levels remained clinically safe during 4 massage sessions evaluated. The TcPO-sub-2 levels during kinesthetic stimulation were somewhat more varied, and movement and pressurization of the TcPO-sub-2 electrode were investigated as possible artifactual explanations for this phenomenon. Overall, findings indicate that social forms of touch such as tactile-kinesthetic massage do not appear to have a medically compromising effect on TcPO-sub-2 in the preterm neonate. Findings are evaluated in relation to the "minimal touch" policy.
