Padovan Method as Early Stimulation in Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

  • Lilianny Medeiros Pereira

Abstract

The pathologies of the neonatal period are largely responsible for infant mortality in the fist year of life, as well as neurological sequelae. In support, we have a greater neuroplasticity in the fist two years of life, which can provide a rehabilitation of neurological circuits, contributing to the recovery of child neurodevelopment. According to the theories of neuroscience and epigenetics is that the Padovan method of Neurofunctional Reorganization is being used as early stimulation therapy in premature and term infants who suffered perinatal hypoxia, with excellent results in a public hospital in the state of Ceará.
