Abstract

TITLE: Effectiveness of balloon therapy on respiratory parameters among schoolers (6-12 years) with pneumonia in pediatric ward GRH Madurai. OBJECTIVES: 1. To assess the level of respiratory parameters among schoolers with pneumonia. 2. To evaluate the effectiveness of balloon therapy on respiratory parameters among schoolers with pneumonia in pediatric ward GRH, Madurai. 3. To associate the level of respiratory parameters among schoolers with pneumonia with their selected socio demographic and clinical variables. HYPOTHESES: There is statistically significant difference between pretest and posttest level of respiratory parameters among schoolers with pneumonia in pediatric ward GRH Madura There is statistically significant difference between the posttest level of respiratory parameters among schoolers with pneumonia in intervention group and control group. There is statistically significant association between the level of respiratory parameters among schoolers with pneumonia with their selected socio demographic and clinical variables. METHODOLOGY: True experimental (pre-test-post test control group) design was used.60 samples selected by simple random sampling technique. Pretest and posttest was done by Modified Carrolls Pulmonary Index score. FINDINGS: Chi square revealed that there was significant difference in levels of respiratory parameters between intervention group and control group (χ2=22.84). CONCLUSION: This study statistically proved that balloon therapy is effective on pneumonia among schoolers (6-12 years).
