Description

Objective: To determine if the maternal voice can be used as an effective measure to increase neonates oxygen saturation (O2 sats) and heart rate. Design: Quantitative Quasi-Experimental Setting: Neonatal infants located in an intensive care unit in a tertiary hospital in Southcentral Kansas. Participants: A total of 30 neonates will be monitored with a condition linked to being born prematurely anytime between 27-37 weeks in stable condition. Methods: Neonate physiological effects will be evaluated by a 5-minute maternal voice recording. Results/Conclusions: Pending data collection and analysis
