Överskrift Effects of tactile/kinesthetic stimulation on the clinical course and sleep/wake behavior of preterm neonates.
Beskrivning Forty preterm neonates treated in an intensive care nursery (M gestational age = 31 weeks, M birthweight = 1274 gms) were randomly assigned to a treatment or control group. The treatment infants received tactile kinesthetic stimulation (body massage and passive movements of the limbs) for three 15-min periods during three consecutive hours for a 10-day period. At the end of the treatment period the behaioral states and activity level of the neonates were monitored during sleep/wake behavior observations. In addition, neonatal behaviors were assessed on the Brazelton scale. The treated infants averaged a 47% greater weight gain per day (25 vs. 17 grams), and spent more time awake and active during sleep/wake behavior observations. On the Brazelton scale the treated infants showed more mature orientation, motor, habituation, and range of state behaviors. Finally, the treated infants were discharged 6 days earlier yielding hospital cost savings $3,000 per infant.
