Babita Agrawal

Abstract: The present study was conducted to assess the effectiveness of icepack application at injection site for reducing pain on antenatal mothers having T. T. injection at People's Hospital. An order to achieve the objectives, an evaluative research approach and true experimental design was adapted and non probability convenience sampling technique was used to select the samples. The study was conducted over a period of 3 weeks. The data were collected from 40 antenatal mothers by using structured questionnaire and standardize pain rating scale VAS. Key words: Icepack, Intramuscular injection (IM), antenatal mothers, antenatal OPD, Injection T. T.
