Abstract

STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM: A study to assess the effectiveness of Helfer skin tap Technique on level of pain among infants undergoing intramuscular injection in Ashwin Hospital Coimbatore. OBJECTIVES: 1. To assess the level of pain in infants during intra muscular injection among experimental and control group. 2. To provide Helfer skin tap technique for experimental group. 3. To assess the effectiveness of Helfer skin tap technique on level of pain among experimental group infants undergoing IM injection. 4. To compare the level of pain infants during IM injection among experimental and control group of infants. 5. To find out the association between the level of pain with the selected Demographic variables of experimental groups. METHODOLOGY: The research design adopted was quantitative research approach, quasi experimental, time series design. Purposive sampling technique used to select the eligible population. Simple random sampling technique was used to allocate the 60 study subjects to experimental and control group which comprised 30 in each group. FLACC pain scale was used to assess the injection pain among infants undergoing intramuscular injection. RESULT: The study findings post assessment reveals that the experimental group at 1st minute 8 (26.6%) infants had moderate pain and 22 (73.3%) infants had severe pain. 30 (100%) of infants had moderate pain during 5th minute. and at 10th minute 16 (53.3%) infants were mild pain and 14 (46.6%) infants having moderate pain. In control group on post assessment at 1st minute 30 (100%) of infants had Severe pain, at 5th minute 30 (100%) infants had severe pain and at 10th minute 30 (100%) infants had severe pain. The study reveals that the experimental and control group ‘t’ value at 1st min t- 1.88, at 5th minute t- 25.56. and the 10th min the ‘t’ value is t-12.37. There is a association between the post-test level of pain and selected demographic variables only in previous IM injection exposure. CONCLUSION: Helfer skin tap technique was effective in reducing the IM injection pain.
