    Article, Congrès - En anglais

    The American Society for Pediatric Research meeting. Baltimore MD (USA), 1992/05/02.

    Background

    Prolonged hospitalization of low birth weight infants increases the risk of medical and psychosocial complications.

    The feasibility of earlier discharge with community-based follow-up of infants of <=2000 g birth weight, without the use of home apnea monitors, was investigated.

    Methods

    One hundred infants of <=2000 g birth weight were randomized to either an intervention or control group.

    Intervention infants were discharged when readiness criteria were met.

    Based on assessed need, intervention group families received public health nursing and homemaker services for up to 8 weeks.

    Control infants were discharged to their homes at the discretion of the attending physician.
