About

Objective: It is aimed to examine the effect of facilitated tucking after vaginal delivery on late preterm stress, comfort and physiological parameters. Design: The study was designed randomized controlled study. Setting: The study was conducted spontaneous vaginal delivery of late preterm at State Hospital between January-June 2020. Participants: In order to determine the sample size of the study, power analysis was performed using the G\*Power (v3.1, 7) program, and a total of 60 preterm were sampled, facilitated tucking (n=30) and control group (n=30). Methods: In the study, Newborn Information and Registration Form, Neonatal Comfort Behavior Scale (NCBS) and Newborn Stress Scale (NSS) were used. As for physiological parameters, for the temperature is used private digital thermometer, for the saturation and heart rate is used device preferred in hospital routine and lastly the respirator rate is clocked by nurses.

Full description

Facilitated tucking (FT) is a procedure that kindly flexes the newborn by placing hands on the head and hips. There is no mentioned any risk about this implementation in the literature review. Its effects are that it improves the sleep quality of the newborn and stabilizes the physiological parameters helps to gain a sense of safety related to the position, support the motor development and protect the energy. Studies have shown that facilitated tucking is practiced many times, especially pain management; however, no study has been found examining how it affects stress and comfort of the preterm newborns first nursing care after delivery. Furthermore, vaginal delivery can be a cause of stress alone for all newborns. During these procedures, nursing practices are needed to relieve the stress and to provide comfort on the newborn. Therefore, it is aimed to examine the effect of facilitated tucking after vaginal delivery on late preterm stress, comfort and physiological parameters. Material and Method: Power analysis for the present study was based on the study by a study which performed the study with at least 32, 30 preterm in each group (with 95% confidence interval and 5% alpha (two tailed)). Herein, the present study was performed with a total of 60 preterm corresponding to 30 preterm for each experimental group (It was assumed that could be lost cases during the study).Randomization was achieved by means of the computer program (https://www.randomizer.org) indicating the total number of preterm, groups and preterm groups and the preterm divided into control and experimental groups. Experimental group: In order to eliminate the pain and stress that they experience during routine care after vaginal delivery to late preterm. FT implementation begins 3 minutes before the procedures and 10 minutes continuous. After the end of the procedures further 3 minutes was given. Physiological parameters were simultaneously recorded on the registration form. Neonatal Comfort Behavior Scale (NCBS) and Newborn Stress Scale (NSS) were used end of the all procedures which means 13th minute. While FT was implemented by researcher, postpartum care for newborn was performed and recorded by same nurse who is on shift. Evaluation of the scales was evaluated by the researcher and the nurse working in the hospital shift (with 5 years of neonatal experience) (Observer I-Observer II). Control group: In this group was implemented of the hospital routine care (supine position). Physiological parameters were simultaneously recorded after the vaginal delivery. Neonatal Comfort Behavior Scale (NCBS) and Newborn Stress Scale (NSS) were used end of the all procedures which means 13th minute. Evaluation of the scales was evaluated by the researcher and the nurse working in the hospital shift (with 5 years of neonatal experience) (Observer I-Observer II).
