Abstract

A study to determine the effectiveness of oral sucrose for pain reduction among infants who receive intra-muscular injection in the selected pediatric hospital in Madurai. OBJECTIVES: To assess the level of pain after administration of oral sucrose after IM injection among the infants in the experimental group. To assess the level of pain after administration of IM injection among infants in control group. To compare the pain scores level between experimental and control group. To find out the association between pain level and selected demographic variables like age, sex, weight , type of injection, type of feeding in the experimental group. To find the association between pain level and selected demographic variables such as age, sex, weight, type of injection, type of feeding in the control group. HYPOTHESIS: There will be a significant difference between the mean pain score of infants in the experimental and control group. There will be significant association between pain reduction and selected demographic variables like age, sex, type of IM injection, type of feeding in experimental group. There will be significant association between pain reduction and selected demographic variables like age, sex, type of IM injection, type of feeding. in control group. OPERATIONAL DEFINITION PAIN In this study, pain may be described as a feeling of hurt or strong discomfort after administration of intra-muscular injection or any invasive procedure. EFFECTIVENESS In this study, effectiveness is defined in terms of reduction in pain after administering oral sucrose solution. ORAL SUCROSE In this study, it is one of the non - pharmacologic systems to produce analgesia in newborn and infants during minor invasive procedure. It is the combination of 30g of purified sugar & 100 ml of water, prepared in a sterile manner with the help of nutritional cup and ounce glass, to prepare oral sucrose solution. From that the 3ml of oral sucrose solution is given orally with the help of palladi and measuring cup. ASSUMPTION Selected demographic variables like, age, sex, weight, type of injection, type of feeding may influence the effectiveness of oral sucrose for pain reduction among infants who receive IM injection. LIMITATION OF THE STUDY: The study is limited to the infants who receive Intra Muscular Injection except the immunization. Sample size is limited to 100 infants. The duration of study is for 6 weeks PROJECTED OUTCOME. This study helps to find the effectiveness of oral sucrose solution in pain reduction among infants while administering intra-muscular injection.The analgesic properties of oral sucrose during IM Injection can be evaluated. Which will enable the nurses to use oral sucrose as a pain reduction measure. In nursing, this study will emphasize the role of nurse to minimize the pain by administering sucrose solution orally as a pre procedural analgesic before IM Injection and minor invasive procedure in new born and infants.
