OBJECTIVE: to access motor performance in premature newborns with risk to motor development impairment. METHOD: Prospective study carried between June 2007 and December 2008 with newborn infant (NI) by spontaneous breathing in air environment and corrected age until 120 days old. The study consisted on assessment of the motor performance through the Infanty Motor Performance Test (TIMP), applied for physiotherapist on the discharge hospital. Data were presented as descriptive statistics and measures of sensibility, specifics and predictive positive and negative values. RESULTS: We studied NI with gestational age (GA) average of 32.61 ± 2.69 weeks and birth weight of 1207 ± 380.14 grams, with predominance of the masculine sex (62%) and the adequate for gestational age (66,6%). The population studied (56 NI) presented punctuation on average, 7 presented punctuation below standard and 6 presented score below standard. The NI with punctuation on average presented GA average of 34.44 ± 0.59 weeks, birth weight of 1355.5 ± 294.26 grams and remain on the average of 11.22 ± 7.07 days on oxygen inhaled. The NI that acquittal below standard presented GA average of 32 ± 2.59 weeks, birth weight of 1180 ± 334.16 grams and remained 8.2 ± 4.24 days under mechanical ventilation (MV); the NI with punctuation was below standard presented GA average of 28.76 ± 2.54 weeks, birth weight of 28.76 ± 2.54 grams and remained on average of 42.5 ± 18.93 days under mechanical ventilation. We verified 54.5% sensibility, 71.4% specifics and predictive positive and negative values of 75% and 100%, respectively. CONCLUSION: The premature newborn infants who presented worse motor performance remained on prolonged ventilator support.
