This RCT (N = 100) is being done to investigate the effects of early kangaroo care (EKC) on mother-infant adaptation postbirth. One measure of infant adaptation is toe temperature (TT) which may also be an index of generalized vascular perfusion (e.g. lungs, gut, kidneys). The sample is 31 non-ventilated 32-36 week preterm infants. EKC was given as soon, as often, and as long each time as possible. Controlled infants received standard care and were held wrapped. All infants were monitored (Space Labs). Using an electronic timer set every 15 minutes, researcher recorded TT off the monitor. Before, during, and after the first KC or control holding, up to four pretest and four posttest, TTs were recorded for each infant. Holding times varied (KC 15-150 minutes; controls 15-90). Mean TTs (ºC) during pretest, test, and posttest were 32.4, 33.4, and 33.0 for KC infants, and 32.6, 32.6, and 32.5 for controls. Baseline mean TT at 15 minutes was 31.5 rising to 33.4 during KC and 32.9 falling to 32.6 for controls. The small sample restricted meaningful statistical analyses; data analyses with 62 infants will be reported in March 2000.
