Several studies have made consistent observations on adverse effects of such handling procedures that include hypoxia, bradycardia, sleep

2013-1-9 · Infants born preterm are at elevated risk for socioemotional difficulties; however, factors contributing to this risk are largely understudied. Within the present study, we explored infant sleep as a biosocial factor that may play a role in infant socioemotional development. Within a prospective longitudinal design, we examined parent-reported ...

Preterm infants exhibited less eye opening, and probably less waking, when interacting with their mothers than healthier preterms. 14 Mothers reported being aware of the sleep-wake behaviours of their preterm infants and using these behaviours when deciding to interact. 15 Healthier preterm infants opened their eyes more when with parents than ...

The disruption of sleep can negatively affect growth, development, and clinical outcomes, and it can also delay hospital discharge. Therefore, the development of interventions that promote preterm infants’ sleep periods in the NICU with the goal of mitigating the negative influences of sleep disruption on their health and development is a major area of research.

With this project we aim to assess the impact of various physiological and environmental factors on brain oxygenation level in the very preterm infants undergoing intensive care.

As preterm infants develop, their sleep patterns gradually begin to resemble the sleep patterns of infants born at term, although their sleep tends to be more variable and not as consistent across the first year of life compared to that of full-term infants (Anders & Keener, 1985). Although there is no universally agreed-upon definition of what constitutes optimal sleep for preterm or full-term infants,

While it had previously been shown that music therapy improved sleep patterns in preterm infants [11], the efficacy of music therapy had not been studied with respect to the state of wakefulness. The data from this study suggest that live music therapy can be offered to sleeping infants.

Sleep state organization in the neonatal period was compared for groups of fullterm, preterm, and small-for-gestational-age infants. Preterm and small-for-gestational-age groups were found to have greater rates of state change than the fullterm group, and maternal perception of the infants was found to be negatively correlated to rates of state ...

2020-9-22 · Protecting the sleep periods of preterm infants is an important issue and is probably very important to promote optimal neurodevelopment of these vulnerable newborns. This study is a first step for the development of a method for QS detection and quantification in view to develop signal processing automation that will have to be compared with scoring using the neurophysiological methods.

Active sleep resilience to disturbance was highest in preterm infants. Prolonged sleep duration signifies high sleep pressure, i.e. need . Having demonstrated that active sleep pressure was highest in very preterm infants, as indexed by its extended duration, we sought to confirm this in another way by testing whether their sleep was more resilient to disturbance.

Findings from these reviews that can be applied …

The importance of sleep in the development is only now beginning to be understood: sleep and established sleep cycles have an important role in the normal neurosensory and cortex development. The biological basis of sleep organization has been highlighted by several studies however environmental differences can affect the sleep patterns in preterm infants in the NICU.

In active sleep, term infants clear GER by increasing swallowing and secondary peristalsis, whereas preterm infants at term equivalent age clear GER by increasing propagated peristalsis. This method of clearance would explain the mechanism by which preterm infants have significantly shorter episodes of reflux than term infants.

Sleep Promotion for Preterm Infants in the NICU Sleep is a crucial human physiologic need. Preterm infants in the NICU are exposed to noxious stimuli that often disrupt and shorten their sleep periods. Sleep disruption may have a negative effect on clinical outcomes, growth, and development and may also delay hospital discharge.
