The Zaky ZAK is the tool used for skin to skin in this study:
The publication that reports the results of Skin to Skin Contact/Kangaroo Care with infants with congenital heart disease is published!
Every mom/baby dyad used The Zaky ZAK (aka Kangaroo Zak) for Skin to Skin contact sessions, and is acknowledged/described in the paper on page 3!
The Zaky HUG is also used before and after surgery in pediatric units to complement skin to skin or while they are not being held:
|Meet Cameron (CTICU at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles)
|Baby with Congenital diaphragmatic hernia "...She instantly calmed when the Zaky HUGs were placed around her cradling her butt and head. She improved everyday and I honestly feel it was because she had us “holding” her. She was expected to be in the hospital 6 months but was discharged after 42 days."
