Abstract

OBJECTIVES: Evaluate the effectiveness of cryotherapy on pain during venepuncture among children in experimental group I and experimental group II in paediatric ward, Government Rajaji Hospital, Madurai. Associate the level of pain during venepuncture among children with their selected socio demographic variables and clinical variables. HYPOTHESES: There is a significant difference in the post test level of pain during venepuncture among children in experimental group I and experimental group II in paediatric ward, Government Rajaji Hospital, Madurai. There is a significant association between the level of pain during venepuncture among children in experimental group I and experimental group II in paediatric ward with their selected socio-demographic variables and clinical variables. CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK: based on Modified Wiedenbach’s helping art theory. METHODOLOGY: Quantitative approach-True experimental post test only design. Sample size was 60, among these 30 samples for experimental group I and 30 samples for experimental group II selected by consecutive sampling technique in paediatric ward at Government Rajaji Hospital, Madurai. Cryotherapy was applied for 15 seconds to experimental group I and cryotherapy was applied for 30 seconds to experimental group II before venepuncture. Post test level of pain during venepuncture was assessed using Wong Baker’s pain assessment scale. FINDINGS: The study suggested that post test level of pain during venepuncture among children in experimental group I and experimental group II mean difference was 2.17. The unpaired‘t’ test value showed statistically significant difference t = 7.83 p < 0.001. CONCLUSION: The study statistically proved that the cryotherapy for 30 seconds reduces the level of pain than cryotherapy for 15 seconds among children and it is a cost effective non-pharmacological technique to reduce the level of pain during venepuncture among children.
