Background: American Academy of Pediatrics, (2006), stated on the basis of many studies as a coherence to review the efficacy of sucrose as an analgesic for procedural pain in infants. Sucrose becomes the focus of a potentially better practice for the pain and analgesia group.
Objective: The main objective of the study was evaluate the effectiveness of oral sucrose solution among infants under going venepuncture in experimental and control group.
Methodology: Quantitative approach - manipulative and evaluative approach was used.
Research design: Quasi Experimental Design - post test only with control group design.
Variables: Independent variable - 24% oral sucrose solution and Dependent variable - level of pain among infants. Setting - Government Head Quarters Hospital, Erode.
Sample - infants undergoing Venepuncture in the Pediatric ward at the Government Head Quarters Hospital, Erode. Sample size - 40 infants. (Experimental group- 20, Control group-20).
Sampling technique - purposive sampling [non- probability] technique.
Results: In experimental group, the mean score was 6, SD was ±0.95. Whereas in control group, the mean score was 9, SD was ±0.83. The mean difference between both the groups was 3 with the mean percent of 30%. The unpaired value was 16.66, which shows a statistical significance with the p value <0.05.
Conclusion: 24% oral sucrose solution was highly effective on infants under going venepuncture in experimental group.
