Abstract
Introduction: Venipunture can be classified as a minor invasive procedure but for children it is accompanied by pain, fear and anxiety. Health care professionals in the clinical setting have a responsibility to reduce pain and anxiety as much as possible while maintaining patient safety. Hence this study was carried out with objective to assess the effectiveness of animated cartoons as a distraction strategy to reduce perception of pain and fear among children of 3-6 years age undergoing venipuncture. Method and Material: The study was conducted for a period of 8 weeks. The study sample was 50 children of 3-6 years age who were undergoing venipuncture, through purposive sampling method. During the first venipuncture, children were assessed at pre, during and post venipuncture for perception of pain and fear with routine care only and during the second venipuncture with routine care and animated cartoon. FLACC, behaviour pain scale and Ottawa Georgia mood scale were used in the study. Result: The animated cartoon was found significantly effective in reducing the perception of pain and fear among children undergoing venipuncture. The results revealed that there is significantly (p<0.001) less pain related behavioural responses as well as decreased perception of fear with animated cartoons as intervention at pre, during and post venipuncture. It is an effective, easy, economical, and non-pharmacological intervention which needs limited training and can be used in clinical setting.
