Abstract

A qausi experimental study to assess the effectiveness of music therapy on the physiological parameters, feeding and sleeping pattern among the premature newborns in NICU, in selected hospital at Erode was done by 301417101 as a partial fulfillment of the requirement of the degree of Master of Science in Nursing at Shivparvathi Mandradiar Institute of Health Sciences, under the Tamilnadu Dr. M.G.R. Medical University Chennai October – 2016. The Objectives of the study were: 1. To assess the pre and post test level of physiological parameters, feeding and sleeping pattern among the experimental and control group. 2. To compare the pre and post test level of physiological parameters, feeding and sleeping pattern among the experimental and control group. 3. To assess the effectiveness of music therapy on the pre and post test level of physiological parameters, feeding and sleeping pattern among the experimental group. 4. To find the association between the post test level of physiological parameters, feeding and sleeping pattern and their selected demographic variables among the experimental group. The research hypothesis formulated and tested were: H1: There is a significant difference in the post test level of physiological parameter, feeding and sleeping pattern between the experimental and control group. H2: There is a significant association in the post test level of physiological parameters, feeding and sleeping pattern of the premature newborns of the experimental group and their selected demographic variables. The conceptual framework for the present study is based on upon Ernestine Wiedenbach’s Art of clinical nursing theory. The investigator organized the review of literature as studies related to premature newborns, studies related to Music therapy in premature newborns, studies related to Music therapy and physiological parameters, feeding and sleeping pattern of premature newborns. The research design used was a quasi experimental design. The data collection tool was validated by two pediatricians and three nursing experts. Reliability was established by inter–rater (0.64) and test-retest method (0.95). The samples for the study were chosen using purposive sampling technique, 25 were in experimental and 25 in control group. Data was collected by self structured interview method by using Preterm Infant Breastfeeding Behavior Scale by Nyqvist and a modified Brief Infant Sleep Questionnaire by Sadeh, to assess the physiological parameters, feeding and sleeping pattern and Music therapy was given for 15 minutes for three consecutive days for 4 weeks. The main study was conducted in NICU of Care 24 Medical Center and Hospital, Erode. The data collected were edited, tabulated, analyzed and interpreted by manually and validated by the Bio statistician. The paired test t value for feeding pattern was 20 and for sleeping pattern was 12.28 at P < 0.05 revealed that there was a significant improvement in maintaining the physiological parameters, improved feeding and sleeping pattern after the music therapy. It was inferred that there was a significant difference in maintaining the physiological parameters, improved feeding and sleeping pattern and they were good improvement in the experimental group than the control group. There was no significant association between the post test level of physiological parameters, feeding and sleeping pattern of the premature newborns and their selected demographic variables. The study concluded that the music therapy was effective in improving the physiological parameters, feeding pattern and sleeping pattern among the premature newborns, in the hospital setup. The implications, limitations, recommendations and conclusion were clearly spelt.
