Abstract

 

Background and Objective: Venous catheter placement is one of the most common invasive procedures performed by nurses-60 minutes before venipuncture, EMLA creams and dressing was applied, and in the control group, routine venipuncture was performed. Pain intensity was measured in both groups using a numeric scale of pain and pain behavior scale during venipuncture and 5 minutes after venipuncture test, and mann-whitney test in SPSS18. 

 

Results: The results of this study showed that there was a statistically significant difference in the intensity of pain during venipuncture between the two groups (P < 0.001).

 

The mean pain intensity based on the numerical scale (intervention group: 3.45 ± 1.69 control group: 8.65 ± 1.5) and behavioral scale (intervention group: 2.75 ± 1.4 control group: 7.75 ± 1.6) was lower in the intervention group than the control group.

 

Conclusion: The use of EMLA cream reduces the pain of venipuncture in children to a tolerable level.
