Detailed Description:

Objective: To describe the profile of newborns undergoing early stimulation in a neonatal intensive care unit, characterizing the study population, according to its variables and neonatal risk factors, indications for treatment of early stimulation.

Methods: It was conducted a descriptive, cross-sectional and analytical study carried out in the General Hospital Dr. Cesar calls, from July to December 2010.
