The kangaroo method is safe for premature infants under 30 weeks of gestation during ventilatory support van Zanten, Henriëtte A. et al. Journal of Neonatal Nursing, Volume 13, Issue 5, 186 – 190.
A case control study into the safety of the kangaroo method in a group of ventilated prematurely born children less than 30 weeks of pregnancy was conducted. Four parameters, heart rate, oxygen saturation, respiratory rate and arterial blood pressure, were compared with one another 1 h before, 1 h after the start and 1 h after finishing kangaroo care. This nursing intervention is safe for this group of premature born infants. They are protected against the risk of decline in physiological stability during and after kangaroo care when the temperature of the infant is controlled and when necessary, extra warmth is provided.
