BACKGROUND Heart rate has been used to measure infants' physiological stability during skin-to-skin holding. Variability in heart period (interbeat interval), a more sensitive measure of autonomic nervous system tone, has not. OBJECTIVE To describe heart period variability in intubated very-low-birth-weight infants during incubator care and during maternal skin-to-skin holding. DESIGN/METHODS An experimental, interrupted time series, crossover design was used; infants served as their own… CONTINUE READING
