Assess the wound healing level among postnatal mothers. Assess the effectiveness of Betadine in episiotomy among postnatal mothers. Compare the level of wound healing in Betadine wash and normal saline. Associate the level of wound healing in experimental group with selected demographic variables.
there is a significant increased level of wound healing episiotomy with Betadine wash among postnatal mothers.
Quantitative approach-Pre-experimental design was adopted. Sample size was 100 (50 samples in Betadine wash and 50 samples in normal saline), assigned by simple random sampling technique method was used. Data was collected using demographic variables and the level of wound healing to compare the Betadine wash and normal saline episiotomy postnatal mothers Betadine wash was given on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and in the alternative days normal saline was given Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Betadine wash for one week 10-20mins for one group and normal saline for another group
In Betadine wash the mean value for pre-test is 29.3 and standard deviation was 8.71. And post-test is 14.56 and standard deviation 9.92. Wilcox on rank sum test was Z=-6.154, P-<0.00001, it will be significant and positive. In normal saline the mean value for pre-test is28.7 and standard deviation was 8.78. And post-test is 29.88 and standard deviation 9.01. Wilcox on rank sum test was Z=-6.1105, W-637.5, P-< 0.00001.
The findings proved that Betadine wash is more effective than normal saline to reduce the wound healing of episiotomy among postnatal mothers.
