Abstract
The high number of morbidity has an effect on the high number of children hospitalization cases, resulting in children vulnerable to stress. Installation of infusion is one of the most invasive measures during child nursing and can cause pain. The purpose of this study is to determine the effectiveness of cutaneous stimulation and cuddling therapy combination during infusion on toddler’s pain response in the nursery of Siti Aisyah Regional Hospital in 2019. The design of the study is an action research with posttest_only control group design. Behavioral and physiological pain responses in the form of pulse frequencies in the two groups will be observed and compared. Forty-eight children in the study sample were divided into two groups; the intervention group (n=24) with a combination of cutaneous stimulation and cuddling therapy and the control group (n=24) with only cutaneous stimulation were taken by consecutive sampling. Analysis is done using Mann Whitney. There are significant differences in pain scale and average pulse between the two groups. The combination of cutaneous stimulation in the form of cold pack and cuddling therapy has proven to be effective as a nonpharmacological therapy that can be applied in children’s room as part of a child nursing.
