Title:
Effects of skin-to-skin holding on general movements of preterm infants.
Authors:
Constantinou, Janet C.; Adamson-Macedo, Elvidina N.; Stevenson, David K.; Mirmiran, Majid; Fleisher, Barry E.
Abstract:
The study objective was to test the hypothesis that the effect of skin-to-skin (STS) holding increases the ratio of rest to activity in low birth weight preterm infants. Ten infants with birthweight < 2,000 grams were videotaped before and after STS holding. Video recordings were analyzed to determine the number of general movements. We found no statistically significant difference between the percentage of general movements over the two periods. We conclude that the ratio of rest-activity before and after STS holding does not change as measured by occurrence of general movements.
