Kangaroo on the Vent


Recommended Posts

Please see our attached kangaroo care policy. We kangaroo stable vented infants successfully. You need at least two staff, preferably three for transfer. Our RT's stay in the unit during care. Nurses were predictably uncomfortable initially but have attained a strong comfort level after repeated exposure. We have not had any extubations in the process. Good luck!
