Background: Infants undergoing cardiac catheterization are at risk for
complications ranging from hypotension, cardiac arrhythmias, bleeding,
decreases in cardiac output, agitation, and crying, all potentially
leading to cardiac instability. The current standard of care post
catheterization in the infant population is based on studies in the adult
cardiac patient. Kangaroo Care (KC), also known as skin-to-skin contact,
between a mother and her infant, is known to improve cardiorespiratory
stability and may be beneficial in infants post cardiac catheterization.
The purpose is to determine 1) the nature of cardiorespiratory and
behavioral effects of KC following cardiac catheterization and 2) the
efficacy of KC as a comforting and physiologically supportive intervention
during the post catheterization period. Design and Methods: A randomized
controlled pretest-posttest design will be used that controls for all
threats to internal validity. Six infants will be included in the initial
pilot study, three controls and three experimental. The pretest period is
a five minute pre-catheterization period and the post-test period is the
three hour period following catheterization when the infant returns from
the catheterization lab. Outcomes: heart rate, respiratory rate,
temperature, oxygen saturation, and salivary cortisol will be collected for
each of the outcome variables. Physiologic data will be assessed using the
Masimo set saturation monitor and the Hewlett Packard Merlin Monitor. The
Thoman State Scale will be used to assess behavioral state. Analysis:
Measures of central tendency will be calculated for each variable for each
subject and then a mean of the individual means will be calculated to form
the group mean for the pre-and post-catheterization periods separately.
Paired t-tests, Repeated Measures ANOVA and Tukey post-hocs will be
utilized to calculate differences in the outcome variables. Pearson
Product Moment correlations between continuous variables and Point
Biserial correlations will be utilized between nominal and continuous
variables.
