Abstract

TITLE: “A study to assess the effectiveness of swaddling techniques on promotion of sleep pattern among newborns at Ashwin hospital, Coimbatore.” OBJECTIVES: 1. To assess the pretest level of sleeping pattern among newborns in the experimental and control group. 2. To provide swaddling technique on promotion of sleep pattern among newborns in experimental group. 3. To assess the effectiveness of swaddling techniques on promotion of sleep pattern among newborns in the experimental group. 4. To compare the level of sleep pattern among newborns in the experimental and control group. 5. To find the association between the posttest level of sleep pattern and their selected demographic variables among the experimental group. METHODOLOGY: A Quasi experimental study was conducted at Ashwin Hospital, Coimbatore. 60 newborns (0–28 days) were selected by non-probability sampling technique of which 30 are experimental group and 30 are control group. Researcher used the swaddling technique to assess its effectiveness on promotion of sleep pattern among newborns in the experimental group. RESULTS: In experimental group, the pretest mean value of sleep score was 58.87 with S.D 9.06 and the posttest mean value of sleep score was 114.07 with S.D 27.7. The calculated paired, ‘t’ value of t=11.49 was found to be statistically highly significant at p<0.05. In control group, the pretest mean value of sleep score was 55.23 with S.D 8.86 and the posttest mean value of sleep score was 58.07 with S.D 12.99. The calculated paired ‘t’ value of t = 1.1 was found to be not significant with p=0.274. On comparison between the experimental and control group the posttest mean value of sleep score was 58.07 with S.D 12.99 in the experimental group and the posttest mean value of sleep score was 114.07 with S.D 27.69 in the control group. The calculated paired, ‘t’ value of t = 10.03 was found to be statistically highly significant at p<0.05. DISCUSSION: It was found that swaddling techniques for the promotion of sleep pattern among newborn was effective in the experimental group. The newborns of the experimental group involved in the study slept well when compared to those newborns who were not swaddled in the control group.
