Kangaroo Care has improved respiratory function in non-ventilated preterm infants but its effects on pulmonary function tests in ventilated infants has not been tested. Thus, KC is not used with this population because safety has not been established. Safety was defined as all outcome variable means remaining within clinically acceptable range during the test period and not being different than pretest and posttest means within and between groups. A randomized controlled trial of 11 ventilated preterm infants (6 KC, 5 Control)was conducted using a pretest-test-posttest design in which 1 hour of KC was administered each day for 4 days to KC group; control infants stayed in the incubator. Heart rate, respiratory rate, SaO2, abdominal temperature, C20/C, end tidal CO2, airway resistance, minute ventilation, and tidal volume were continuous recorded by the BICORE 100 during synchronized ventilation on a STAR SYNC ventilator. There were no differences between groups before testing on Day 1. All group means for all variables remained within clinically acceptable range each day and in each period; no differences between periods, days, or between groups occurred as tested by repeated measures ANOVA. Trends toward increased SaO2 and decreased FiO2 during KC each day were present. Safety of one hour of KC has been established, but no benefits to pulmonary function occurred. Given that transfer into and out of KC with ventilated infants is labor intensive, practice of KC with this population may not be warranted unless benefits to infants or mothers are shown on further study. Maternal comments of pleasure and increased attachment merit empirical investigation.
