Purpose: To examine the effect of the Australian Safe-n- Sound Baby Safety Capsule (BSC) on oxygen saturation (SpO2) values of preterm and term infants ready for discharge home.

Design: A two-group pretest/posttest quasi-experimental study compared the effect of the BSC on SpO2.

Sample: Thirty-nine low birth weight premature newborn infants and 19 term newborn infants ready for discharge home.

Main outcome variable: Mean oxygen saturation values and the number of oxygen desaturation events below 90 percent.

Results: The mean SpO2 values for both preterm and term infants were within the normal range (>90–100 percent) for each phase of data collection (baseline, capsule, and recovery). However, mean SpO2 values decreased from baseline during the 60 minutes spent in the BSC for the preterm infants.
