The placement of intravascular cannula is one of the most common invasive procedures performed in hospitals and Guggul is a naturally occurring product available early in markets has the anti-inflammatory properties. Objectives:-To assess the effectiveness of Guggul application on intravenous infiltration, to compare effect of standard care with Guggul application and to find out association between selected clinical variables and intravenous infiltration. Methods: In order to achieve the objectives of the study, true experimental design was used ,60 samples with intravenous infiltration were selected and randomly assigned to experimental and control group. Infiltration was observed using (INS)infiltration nurses society- infiltration scale, also various clinical variables related to intravenous infiltration were assessed in both experimental and control group. Observations were done at an interval of 12 hours for three days. Statistical analysis was undertaken using the unpaired t test, double sample t test and Fisher's exact test. Results: Paired t-test was used to assess the effectiveness of Guggul application on intravenous infiltration T values of this comparison over days one to six were 4.4, 17.7, 13.5, 14.3 and 17 at 29 degrees of freedom. The corresponding p-values were small (of the order of 0.000) at 29 degrees of freedom which rejected the null hypothesis and proved guggul to be effective against intravenous infiltration, Also the Effect of Guggul application and standard care over intravenuos infiltration was compared using two sample t-test. value of t (2.449) was found to be greater than tabulated value (2.0) at second observation thus the Null hypothesis was rejected and guggul was found to be effective compared to other standard treatment at second observation, according to the third objective association was done between clinical variables and Intravenous infiltration using Fisher’s exact test. Which has shown that P-value of corresponding volume of infusion is small (less than 0.05), thus the null hypothesis was rejected and volume of infusion was found to have some association with intravenous infiltration.
