Arathy Surendran | Dr. Omana M P

Abstract: The present study investigated the effectiveness of multisensory stimulation on neurobehaviour among preterm babies admitted in NICU of selected tertiary care hospital, Kottayam. A quantitative approach with quasi experimental pre test post test control group design was used for the study. The study was theoretically supported by Roy?s Adaptation model. A total of 60 preterm babies each 30 in control and experimental group, were selected for the study using non-probability purposive sampling technique. The data were collected using clinical data sheet and Neurobehavioural Assessment Scale to assess neurobehaviour. After pre test, the subjects in the control group received routine care and subjects in the experimental group received multisensory stimulation along with routine care. The multisensory stimulation consisting of audio, tactile and kinesthetic stimulation given by the investigator for 5 consecutive days. Post test were conducted on 5th day and 15th day by the investigator. The results of the study revealed that, multisensory stimulation had a significant effect in improving neurobehaviour among preterm babies at 0.05 level.
