PMID:  8869629     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
PURPOSE: To review and integrate current multidisciplinary research literature about multiple sensory stimulation of premature infants. SOURCES: Computer search using CINAHL, MEDLINE, PSYLIT, SOCIAL SCIENCE INDEX and the topics "premature," "infant," "neonate," and "stimulation." Review of the results of the research and integration of findings for nursing. RESULTS: Overall, infants responded positively to the interventions reviewed, including immediate and long-term effects, some up to 2 years. IMPLICATIONS FOR NURSING PRACTICE: Nursing research of multiple sensory stimulation of premature infants can be improved by the use of (a) a theoretical base for research, (b) better descriptions of the infant samples and the environmental context of the research, and (c) individualization of infant stimulation to permit conservation of epigenetic integrity of the infant.
