Resumen

ACOSTA DIAZ, Ramón et al. Método piel a piel: Evaluación clínica-humoral durante el primer año de edad corregida. Rev Cubana Pediatr [online]. 2003, vol.75, n.3. ISSN 0034-7531.

To find out the influence of the Kangaroo mother care method on the clinical and humoral status of preterm infants cared for by this method during their first year of life, 120 neonates born at "Justo Legón Padilla" gynecological and obstetric hospital of Pínar del Río province from January 1st to June 30th, 2000 were analyzed (the study group). The control group was formed by children with the same characteristics but born from July 1st to December 31st and cared for by the traditional method. A form was prepared to be administered to the whole sample where results of the clinical history and information from the nutritional and immune follow-up at the doctor´s office including two blood extractions for determining the level of immunoglobulins (at 6 and 12 months of age) were collected. A database in Microsoft Excel-2000 was made; Student´s test was applied to the sample to compare the means of both groups in addition to the Chi square test, both with a confidence interval of p < 0,05. Significantly higher levels of inmmunoglobulins were observed in the study group, particularly IgA, at 6 months of corrected age as well as the extension of breast-feeding and the reduction of hospital admissions due to infections.
