Objective : To evaluate the transfer of newborns from the delivery room to the neonatal care unit with their fathers on wheelchairs in terms of the safety of the procedure and paternal anxiety.
Methods : A prospective observational single-center before-and-after pilot study was conducted from February to May 2018 at the University Maternity Hospital of Nantes. Safe transfer was judged on the basis of episodes of hypothermia or hypoglycemia. Paternal anxiety was assessed with the State–Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI) scale after newborn transfer.
Results : Overall, 70 preterm newborns were enrolled, 44 were carried in wheelchairs in the father's arms (target group) and 26 were transferred in an incubator (control group). After adjusting for gestational age and birthweight, there were no statistically significantly differences between the target and the control group in the rates of hypothermia (43.9% vs 30.8%, p = 0,59) and hypoglycemia (9.52% vs 19.23%, p = 0,19). The STAI scale score was not significantly different between groups after incubator transfer or wheelchair transfer, at 35 ± 8.2 and 38 ± 10.2, respectively (p = 0.07).
Conclusion : Transferring a newborn to the neonatal care unit via wheelchair with the father is a safe alternative to incubator transfer. (Source éditeur)
