ABSTRACT:
Introduction: Cannulation causes moderate or severe pain in a substantial number of children. Some institutions have procedures for minimizing the predictable pain of cannulation, especially in children. Hence the investigator decided to conduct a study on effectiveness of virtual reality as distraction among children undergoing I V cannulation in selected hospitals Moodbidri. Aims: The present study aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of virtual reality as distraction among children undergoing I V cannulation in selected hospitals. Settings and Design: An evaluative approach with True-experimental design, post-test only with control group was adopted in order to evaluate effectiveness of virtual reality as distraction among children undergoing I V cannulation in selected hospitals Moodbidri. Probability simple random sampling was used to select the 40 sample for the study. Methods and Material: Demographic profile and Wong Baker’s pain scale was developed as the tool to collect data. Statistical analysis used: Descriptive and inferential statistics were planned to analyze the collected data. Results: In the experimental group the data shows that 10 (50%) of the samples had mild pain and 10(50%) of the samples had moderate pain. In the control group the data shows that 16 (80%) of the samples had severe pain and 4(20%) of the samples had moderate pain. There was significant difference between mean post test pain score between experimental and control group.. Conclusions: The findings of the study shows that the virtual reality as distraction was effective in reducing the level of pain among children undergoing I V cannulation.
