Abstract

Aim and objective: To assess and compare the effectiveness of facilitated tucking on level of pain among preterm infants undergoing painful procedure. Methodology: Quantitative approach, quasi experimental post-test only design was adopted to assess the effectiveness of facilitated tucking on level of pain among 60 preterm infants (30 in study and 30 in control group) undergoing painful procedure who fulfilled the inclusion and exclusion criteria at Amma Hospital, Choolaimedu & Sir Ivan Stedeford Hospital, Ambattur, Chennai. Non-probability purposive sampling was used to select the samples. Facilitated tucking was performed on the preterm infants during painful procedure and the level of pain was assessed after the procedure and interpreted using Premature Infant Pain Profile (PIPP) Scale. Results: The study findings revealed that the post test mean pain score of preterm infants undergoing painful procedure in the study group was 3.2 with standard deviation of 2.7 and post test mean pain score of preterm infants in control group was 8.3 with standard deviation of 4.8. -5.051) indicated that there was high statistical significance in the post test mean pain score among the preterm infants undergoing painful procedure at p<0.001 level. Conclusion: The result revealed that facilitated tucking was effective in reducing pain during painful procedures and can be practiced as a part of routine nursing care of preterm infants during painful procedures.
