Data from the present study reports that uncertainty in fathers and mothers of PTI hospitalized in NICU was significantly associated to three factors inherent to their sociodemographic characteristics (being from socioeconomic levels 1 and 2, not having a partner, level of schooling) and two factors appertaining to the PTI's biophysical profile (low birth weight < 1500 gr and requiring mechanical ventilation support).
