Abstract

Oral stimulation in the preterm infant, through nonnutritive sucking has been pointed out as facilitating the acquisition of an earlier oral feeding. The use of music therapy has also shown a positive influence in promoting a more effective suction. Recognizing the importance of scientific evidence-based decision-making, we intend to analyze the influence of music therapy, associated with non-nutritive sucking, on the acquisition of oral skills in preterm infants, hospitalized in a neonatal intensive care unit. A systematic review of the effectiveness literature was carried out through a database search. We included articles based on experimental and quasi-experimental studies, in Portuguese, English and Spanish, without time limit and answered the question of investigation. We obtained five studies that support a positive influence of music therapy as a reinforcement of non-nutritive sucking and the contribution of these two interventions in the transition from tube feeding to oral feeding.
