Effectiveness of Magnesium Sulphate Crystal Fomentation versus Glycerine Magnesium Sulphate Paste Application for Phlebitis among Children Receiving Peripheral Infusion in Krishna Hospital, Karad

Shalumol C George | Dr. Sunita H Tata [2]


Abstract: INTRODUCTION Peripheral infusion is commonly used for children. Since children have to undergo many infusions for the administration of medications they will be at a higher risk of developing phlebitis. OBJECTIVES To determine the severity of phlebitis among children receiving intravenous infusion as measured by phlebitis measurement chart,. To determine the effect of magnesium sulphate crystal fomentation on phlebitis, to determine the effect of glycerin magnesium paste application on phlebitis and to compare the effect of both intervention on phlebitis. METHODOLOGY The study based on Quasi experimental designs.30 patient were selected by simple random sampling technique. standard modified phlebitis rating scale and pain rating scale were used to assess the both experimental (Glycerin Magnesium Sulphate paste application) & control group (Magnesium Sulphate crystal fomentation). RESULT Statistical findings shows that the median of paired observation differences of pain and phlebitis of glycerin magnesium sulphate paste application (experimental group) in children of intravenous therapy related phlebitis is decreased from 3 on the day one to 1 on the day three. The difference is significant at P<0.01. The findings revealed that the The glycerin magnesium sulphate paste application is more effective than that of magnesium sulphate fomentation in treatment of intravenous therapy related phlebitis.
