Abstract

The immature brain, lungs, gastrointestinal tract and skin of preterm infants are particularly susceptible to injury and abnormal development and function, often leading to long-term neurological and health problems. The present study was aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of AVTK (Audio, Visual, Tactile and Kinesthetic) stimulation on neurobehavioral state among preterm. Quasi experimental-one group pre and posttest with control group design was used in this study. Purposive sampling technique was used for selecting 30 samples. The tools used for the study were demographic, clinical variables and modified Morgan's Neonatal Neurobehavioral Examination Tool. The intervention was given for the duration of 30 minutes, twice a day for 5 days. Results showed that there were significant differences between control and experimental group. The unpaired t’ test value showed statistical significance (t= 3.76). In relation to the demographic variable there were no significant association with post test scores in control and experimental group. AVTK was quiet significantly effective in enhancing the neurobehavioral state among preterm.
