Abstract:

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of the applications of external cold and vibration and blowing soap bubbles during phlebotomy in children aged between 3 and 6 years.

DESIGN: This study is a randomized controlled trial.

METHODS: The sample was obtained using block randomization. Children were divided into three groups: “external cold and vibration group,” “blowing soap bubbles group,” and “control group.” Children, their parents, the nurse, and the researcher rated the children’s pain during phlebotomy.

FINDINGS: A statistically significant difference between groups was found on pain scores. Pain scores were lower in the groups of external cold and vibration, and blowing soap bubbles than the control group.

CONCLUSIONS: The methods of external cold and vibration and blowing soap bubbles had a pain relieving effect in children aged between 3 and 6 years during phlebotomy.
