Abstract

A Study to Assess the Effectiveness of Oral Sucrose on Level of Pain during DPT Immunization among Infants at a Selected Hospital, Salem. Objectives:To assess the level of pain during DPT immunization among infants in experimental and control group. To determine the effectiveness of oral sucrose on level of pain during DPT immunization among infants in experimental and control group. To associate the level of pain during DPT immunization among infants in experimental and control group with their selected demographic variables. Operational Definitions Effectiveness Effectiveness refers to the reduced level of pain among infants in experimental group when compared to control group as measured by modified REILY infant pain Assessment Scale. Oral sucrose Oral sucrose refers to 24% sucrose solution (2ml) given to infants prior to administration of DPT immunization. DPT Immunization It is a vaccine administered intra muscularly in vastus lateralis to prevent DPT. Pain Pain refers to an unpleasant experience observed in the infant during injection as measured by using modified REILY infant pain assessment scale (facial expression, body movement, activity, cry, consolability). Infants Infants refer to the babies of 6 - 14 weeks of age receiving DPT immunization. Hypotheses H1: There will be significant difference in level of pain among infants in experimental and control group after oral sucrose administration during DPT immunization at P < 0.05 level. H2: There will be significant association between the level of pain during DPT immunization among infants in experimental and control group with their selected demographic variables at p<0.05 level. Delimitations: The study was limited to the infants receiving DPT immunization. The study period was limited to only 4 weeks. The sample size was limited to 60 samples. Projected Outcome This study was conducted to determine the effectiveness of oral sucrose on level of pain during DPT immunization among infants. Findings of the study will enable to administer oral sucrose in the way of pain management.
