Abstract

Faces pain scale and colour analogue pain scale are two methods to assess the pain of the children. There many method to assess the pain of the children but mostly all the hospital is using faces pain scale to assess the pain of the children. Pain perception in children is a very controversial topic in children admitted in hospital. So the present study aims to compare faces pain scale and colour analog pain scale in children undergoing therapeutic procedure such as intravenous injection, intramuscular injection, postoperative children, venipuncture and other invasive procedure in Saveetha Medical College and Hospital. A Quantitative research approach with comparative research design was adopted to conduct the study among 60 children added between 6 to 12 years attending pediatric ward who were selected by non-probability convenient sampling technique. A semi-structured interview method was used to collect demographic data and pain is assessed using faces pain scale and colour analogue pain scale in Saveetha medical college and hospital. The result of the study shows that among 60 samples proves that the mean score of faces pain scale was 4.95±2.50 and the mean score of colour analogue scale was 4.77±2.83. The calculated paired ‘t’ test value of t = 0.747 was not found to be statistically significant which clearly infers that there was no significant difference in the pain score measured by faces pain scale and colour analogue scale among children 6 – 12 years attending pediatric ward.
