Dr. Syed Meer Faisal Ali Meer Tilawat Ali* and Dr. Satish R. Khatal

ABSTRACT

Objective: The purpose of this study was to evaluate efficacy of kshirbala taila abhynaga on growth parameters (length, height, head circumference and skin fold thickness) gain velocity of LBW. Materials and Methods: A randomized clinical trial study was conducted on LBW neonates whom were admitted to bharti hospital Hospital, pune. Neonates were randomly assigned to two groups. In group one, 15 neonates were received abhyanga one times in a day for consecutive 45 days by their mothers. In group two, intervention consisted of standard and routine care as control group. The primary endpoints were efficacy in increase of mean of weight, height and head circumference that were evaluated 45 days after intervention, at ages one and two months. Secondary outcome was clinical side effects. Results: In the body massage group, only weight at the age of two months was significantly higher than the control group (mean±SD: 3250±305 vs. 2948±121 gr, p=0.005). No adverse events were seen in the two groups. Conclusion: Body massage might be used as an effective and safe non-medical intervention for increasing of weight gain velocity in LBW preterm neonates.

Keywords: Low birth weight, Abhyanga, length, Height, Head Circumference, skin fold thickness.
