Effect of Topical Heparin Jelly versus Saturated Magnesium Sulphate Fomentation for Care of Post IV Cannulation Phlebitis among Children in a Selected Hospital, Kolkata
Abstract: Introducing peripheral intravenous access in children is a common but stressful pediatric procedure. Peripheral intravenous line causes hazards like phlebitis and thrombophlebitis. Early treatment of this complication can reduce hematoma, air embolism and catheter related blood stream infection or prolong hospitalization. The investigator conducted a experimental study with the objectives to assess the effect of topical application of Heparin Jelly as compared to saturated Magnesium sulphate (MgSo4) hot fomentation for care of post intravenous cannulation phlebitis among children. Quasi experimental design was adopted and purposive sampling technique was used to select 30 children with post intravenous cannulation phlebitis. Data collection was done using Baxter scale. Data obtained was tabulated and analyzed in terms of objectives of the study using descriptive and inferential statistics. The study findings revealed that both treatment was effective but when both treatment were compared, it found that saturated magnesium sulphate fomentation was more effective than the heparin jelly in reducing phlebitis at p
