Effectiveness of Respiratory Therapy on Respiratory Parameters and Behavioural Response of children with Lower Respiratory Tract Infection
Anjali K V, Dr. Sreedevi T R
The present study investigated the effectiveness of respiratory therapy on respiratory parameters and behavioural response of children with lower respiratory tract infections. The conceptual framework for the study was based on Betty Neuman’s system model. The research design selected for this study was quasi experimental pre test post test control group research design. Seventy children with LRTI were selected by purposive sampling.Results of the study revealed that respiratory therapy had a statistically significant effect in improving respiratory parameters such as respiratory rate, oxygen saturation, breathing pattern, air entry and abnormal breath sounds at 0.05 level. There was a statistically significant difference in the behavioural response in terms of cry, activity, comfort, social interaction, facial expression and feeding of children with lower respiratory tract infection between control and experimental group at 0.05 level.
