Abstract

An interventional study was carried out to find the effectiveness of using cold needle for giving intramuscular injection to reduce pain perception. Simple random sampling technique was used, 60 male and female subjects who are receiving intramuscular injection admitted in Medical wards at Rajiv Gandhi Government General Hospital were selected. 30 subjects for each experimental and control group. True experimental design was used to conduct the study. Using cold needle technique intramuscular injection was given for experimental group. For Control group routine technique was given. Post assessment was done after interventions for both groups by using Wong Baker’s Faces Pain Scale. Data was analysed with both descriptive and inferential statistical methods. Independent T test was used to compare the effectiveness between experimental and control group and Karl Pearson’s co efficient of correlation was used to find out the relationship between demographic variable. After cold needle technique the mean pain score in experimental group was 0.67 and in control group was 6.73 after routine technique (Independent t test t = 24.23, P = 0.001). This shows that using cold needle technique is more effective in reducing pain perception among subjects received intramuscular injection. The investigator thereby concludes that using cold needle technique has reduced the level of pain perception on subjects received intramuscular injection. Thus it encompasses commitment by nurse who can practice Cold needle technique to reduce the level of pain perception.
