Abstract

A Study was done to Evaluate the Effectiveness of Kaleidoscope Vs Toy Mobile Phones as Distraction Techniques on Pain Among Children during IV Infusions at Selected Hospitals Salem. Quasi experimental post test only without control group design was adopted where non probability convenience sampling technique was used to select 30 samples each from Sri Gokulam Hospital (Experimental group I) and Pranav Hospital (Experimental group II), Salem. Experimental group I were given Kaleidoscope at the onset of the procedure and were motivated to play. Experimental group II were given Toy Mobile Phone at the onset of the procedure and were motivated to play during the procedure. Pain observation scale was used to assess the level of pain of children. Data was collected from 11.07.2011 to 07.08.2011. Data was analyzed by using descriptive and inferential statistics. Level of pain among children in experimental groups I and II reveals that in experimental group I 3 (10%) of children had mild pain, majority of children 19(63.33%) in experimental group I and in 20 (66.66%) experimental group II had moderate level of pain. However none of the children had severe pain in experimental group II whereas in experimental group I 8(26.66%) had severe pain. Mean score for experimental group I was 3.58±1.15, which was 54.28% of total score, whereas for experimental group II the mean score was 2.73±0.94 which was 39% of the total score, revealing a difference of 15.28%. Significant difference was found in the post test mean values of level of pain (t=4.25) at p < 0.05 level among experimental groups I and II. In both the groups, there was no significant association between the level of pain and the demographic variables at p < 0.05 level. This study implies that pain among children distracted with toy mobile phones was comparatively lower than those distracted with kaleidoscope and is an effective intervention to distract children.
