Low birth weight babies often experience some problems in the period soon after birth as a result of the characteristics of an immature organ so can causes the inability to regulate the stimulus that comes resulting in the baby tends to stress. Developmental Care is an orphanage that facilitates the development of infants through the management of the care and observation of infant behavior so that babies receive an adequate stimulus causing increased physiological stabilization and decreased stress. This study aims to determine the influence of Developmental Care of physiological function (oxygen saturation and pulse) of Low birth weight babies. The design used in this study was pre-experimental with a type of one-group pre-post test design. The samples in this study were Low birth weight babiesthat were treated in the perinatology room of Dr. Soekardjo in Tasikmalaya City which amounted to 18 with sampling techniques Purposive Sampling. Analysis of the data used is a univariate analytic to find the average pulse rate and oxygen saturation both before and after the Developmental Care, while for bivariate analysis using Wilcoxon test. The results of the analysis showed significant influence of developmental care of oxygen saturation with (p value 0.000), but not significant to the pulse (p value 0.948). Based on the results of the research is recommended to the hospital to increase other interventions that support developmental care in order to improve the quality of nursing care, especially at Low birth weight babies.
