Effect of Oxygen Compressed Cold Application VS Conventional Cold Application Level of Pain among Patients Musculoskeletal Disorders: A Randomized Control Trial

Malarmathi.M, Dr. Renuka.K

Background: Musculoskeletal disorders  (MSDs) are injuries or pain which includes joints,  ligaments,  muscles,  nerves,  tendons, and structures that support limbs, neck and back. Global prevalence of varies from age and diagnosis, between 20 %–33 % of people across the live with a painful musculoskeletal condition. Cold application used in the management of acute injury/trauma, chronic pain, muscle spasm., inflammation, and edema.The study finding reveals the efficacy of oxygen compressed cold application in level of pain among patients with musculoskeletal disorders with high level of significance. This findings can be implicated for all patients with generalized musculoskeletal disorders with pain. Aims: To assess the level of pain among patients with musculoskeletal disorders in both Group I, Group II and Group III during pre-test and post – test. To compare the effectiveness of conventional cold application vs oxygen compressed cold application on level of pain among patients with musculoskeletal disorders in Group I, Group II and Group III. To associate the level of pain among patients with musculoskeletal disorders with selected demographic variables. Methods: Randomized control trail design was adopted for the study. The population of the study was patients pain in musculoskeletal disorders. 90 samples were selected by purposive sampling technique. Pain outcome of the patients with musculoskeletal disorders was assessed by visual analogue scale and numerical rating scale. Results: The result shows that both conventional cold application and oxygen compressed cold application were effective on pain among patients with musculoskeletal disorders. Conclusion: This study proves that the oxygen compressed cold application was found to effective as the conventional cold application. In modern day ward setup oxygen compressed cold application can be used as a replacement for conventional cold application
