Saliva is an important diagnostic fluid that is obtained non-invasively. Because preterm infants secrete small amounts of saliva, researchers typically use citric acid crystals or a 10% solution to stimulate secretion. However, this method can disturb infants up to one hour later. This retrospective review of records from a 4-year RCT in progress was done to compare the effects of two collection methods on distress, emesis, and saliva volume in 39 newborn preterm infants, 32-36 weeks gestation. Cotton dental rolls and citric acid were used with the first 9 infants and Whatman(r) 2.54 x 9.0 cm, grade 42 filter paper was used for the next 30. The citric acid crystals and dental roll method was discontinued after 8 of the first 9 infants gagged or vomited with their next feeding; two produced insufficient saliva for radioimmunoassay. No vomiting or distress occurred using the filter paper method and all 30 infants produced sufficient saliva. We conclude that using Whatman(r) filter paper is an adequate, safe, and non-stressful method for collecting saliva from newborn preterm infants. The procedures for saliva collection and assay will be described during the presentation.
