Bathing Preterm Infants
  Bathing Preterm Infants is a multimedia training CD ROM that includes video, photos, text, and audio.  Evidence supporting bathing preterm infants using developmentally supportive practices is provided through documentation of research findings in relevant literature.  Types of baths for infants in the NICU are described and demonstrated including spot bathing and immersion bathing with swaddling. Guidelines are provided to assist the caregiver in
determining whether a spot bath or an immersion bath with swaddling is most appropriate for an infant. Case studies are provided for each type of bathing method with trends displayed of heart rate, respiration rate, and oxygen saturation before, during, and after spot bathing as well as before and after immersion bathing.
