ABSTRACT:
Introduction: Thrombophlebitis occurs when a blood clot causes inflammation in one or more of the veins near the surface of the skin. Damage to a vein can occur as a consequence of indwelling catheters, trauma or the infection of the irritating substances. Objectives: 1. To assess the occurrence of thrombophlebitis among patients with a peripheral intravenous cannula by using modified thrombophlebitis scale in experimental and control group. 2. To assess the effectiveness of hot application on experimental group. 3. To compare the occurrence of thrombophlebitis among patients with an intravenous cannula in experimental and control group. 4. To find out the association between the occurrence of thrombophlebitis with their selected demographic variables. Hypothesis: H0: There will be no significant difference in the occurrence of thrombophlebitis among patients with a peripheral intravenous cannula in experimental group and control group. H1: There will be a significant difference in the occurrence of thrombophlebitis among patients with a peripheral intravenous cannula in experimental group and control group. Design: A quantitative approach using quasi experimental two group post test. Participants: 30 patient in experimental group and 30 patients in control group were selected using Non-Probability convenient sampling technique. Tool: standardized phlebitis scale for using the assess thrombophlebitis among patients with peripheral IV cannula. Results: The mean score of experimental group patients 0.46 was less than control group patients 2.83 and ‘t’ test show that there was a significant difference in the occurrence of thrombophlebitis (‘t’=8.43, p>0.05) between experimental group and control group. Conclusion: From the above findings, it evident that hot application is effective on prevention of thrombophlebitis among patients with peripheral IV cannula.
