FiO 2 control by parents of preterm infants admitted to a neonatal intensive care unit: A pilot study



FiO 2 control by parents of preterm infants admitted to a neonatal intensive care unit: A pilot study



Acta Paediatrica 107(8): 1471-1472



When newborns are admitted to the neonatal intensive care unit for prematurity or other reasons, parents do not take on the role that they were expecting to assume. That is, they do not become the main caregivers of their children. To address this issue, neonatal units are currently trying to involve parents in the care of their children as soon as possible. Interesting experiences regarding this issue have been published. Most of the experiences show that when parents assume part of the responsibility for caring for their children, breastfeeding is prolonged, hospital-stay lengths decrease, weight gain increases and the numbers of readmissions decrease (1-4).
