Fist: thank's for answer to everyone! It's good for me to know that other nurses in a so far countries work like me and someone of my staff!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now I have a question: when you have to suction micropreemie ventilated what kind of containment do you use?Do you have experience with sensorial saturation (it's a type of analgesia who use all sense for containment of pain) or you use only a facilitative tuck? Really good night to everyone!!!!!!

Swaddled and prone position. We use rolls around the baby, too.

Most of our preemies are kept prone position and contained with bendy bumpers and freddy the frogs,rolls. Since we use the oscillator as means of ventilation we need to see the vibration of the baby'chest at all times. Once on nasal CPAP, then we sometimes swaddle. For painful procedures we are now incorporating Sweet-ese on the pacifier, but must have a doctor's order for that.
