Abstract

The incidence of preterm birth in Indonesia still accounts for the highest mortality rate. Failure to provide adequate nutrition will have an impact on growth failure, risk of infection and longer duration of care for preterm infant. This study aims to analyzing the relationship between enteral and parenteral nutrition on body weight, the incidence of NEC, the incidence of sepsis and the length of care at Dr. Soetomo Hospital Surabaya. A total 106 subjects were enrolled, 78 infants were LBW, 19 infants were VLBW. Gestational age between 32-<37 weeks as many as 96 subjects. 68 infants were female. A total of 49 patients (46.2%) received parenteral nutrition. There is a relationship between enteral nutrition and the incidence of sepsis (p= 0.03), parenteral nutrition and body weight (p= 0.005), parenteral nutrition and the incidence of sepsis (p= 0.001), and parenteral nutrition and the length of care for preterm infants (p= 0.001). There is a relationship between enteral nutrition with the incidence of sepsis and parenteral nutrition with body weight, incidence of sepsis and length of care in preterm infants.
