Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Thirty-six neonates were randomly assigned to 2 groups of 18 neonates each. In the pacifier group, infants were given a pacifier before milk feeding. Newborns in the control group were fed without preprandial use of a pacifier. Doppler measurement of peak systolic velocity, end-diastolic velocity, and Pourcelot resistance index in the superior mesenteric artery was performed in both groups. Peak systolic and end-diastolic velocities were significantly increased after pacifier sucking in the preprandial stage. The resistance index decreased significantly after milk feeding but not after pacifier sucking. The feeding volume was not affected by preprandial pacifier sucking.
