The purpose of this research was to examine the effects of containment (restraint of an infant's movements) on premature infants' postsuctioning transcutaneous PO2 values. The hypothesis was that premature infants receiving containment would have significantly different postsuctioning transcutaneous PO2 levels than infants receiving no containment. Premature infants with respiratory disease require suctioning to remove excess secretions from their lungs. Research studies document a variety of infant responses to suctioning; hypoxia, hypoxemia, increased blood pressure, bradycardia, increased intracranial pressure, and increased cerebral blood flow velocity. Most studies have examined only a few isolated variables and the magnitude and duration of hypoxemia in response to suctioning. Our sample comprised 24 infants less than 72 hours of age, who had respiratory distress syndrome and had been born at between 24 and 33 weeks' gestational age. The setting was a neonatal intensive care unit of a large county hospital. The same nurse performed the suctioning and containment procedures in all subjects. Student's t-tests and analysis of variance were carried out to determine the effect of the technique.
