Sowjanya Balamala | S. Jasmin Debora
Abstract: A study was undertaken to assess the effectiveness of Betadine dressing versus Chlorhexidine dressing in terms of prevention of pinsite infections among patients with External skeletal Fixators in NRI General Hospital, Guntur, Andhrapradesh. Patients were selected by Probability random sampling technique. The conceptual framework of the study was based on Modified Betty Neumans Model. Data were collected by using Checketts and Otterburns grading system of evaluation from 60 patients undergoing External Skeletal fixation. The study revealed that in both Experimental groups the pinsite infection levels are same in pre assessment (i. e. , 1st day). Whereas in post assessment on 5th day 1.660.372 & on 10th day 1.60.312 in Betadine dressing group. And in Chlorhexidine dressing group it was 1.330.471 on 5th day & 1.8330.372 on 10th day thus it is inferred that Chlorhexidine dressing was effective in prevention of pinsite infections among patients with External skeletal fixators.
