A mother who has undergone labor by getting a perineal wound will feel pain, pain that is felt in every mother with a perineal wound causing unpleasant effects such as pain and fear of moving so that many mothers with perineal injury rarely want to move postpartum so that it can result in many problems include uterine sub involution, non-smooth discharge of lochea, and postpartum hemorrhage. Women with a perineal wound will experience pain and discomfort (Tamsuri in Rahmawati, 2013). Objective. Purpose to find out the effect of cold compresses on the reduction of perineal wound pain in postpartum mothers at the Ar-Rahmah Indralaya Ogan Ilir Maternity Clinic in Palembang in 2019. Research Methods This sampling technique was carried out using consecutive sampling techniques. With a sample size of 35 respondents in the postpartum maternity clinic Ar-Rahma Ogan Ilir Palembang in 2019, the tool used was a questionnaire to determine the effect of cold compresses on perineal wound pain with the Numerical Rating Scale (NRS) used to assess the intensity or severity of pain and to provide pain with the client’s complete freedom to identify the severity of pain and be analyzed by the T-paired test. Result, Univariate analysis results showed that from an average of 3 treatments it was found that respondents who felt pain before treatment experienced more pain in the moderate category (52%) and severe pain (23%) and mild pain (25%). Respondents who were taken after treatment were more likely to experience mild pain (43%), moderate pain (42%), and severe pain (15%). The results of the bivariate analysis showed that respondents had a significant relationship between the dependent variable and the independent variable. In the parametric statistical research data the Wilcoxon test results obtained a significance value of 0,000 (p <0.05) meaning that there was an influence of cold compresses on perineal wound pain at the Ar-Maternity Clinic Rahma Ogan Ilir Palembang in 2019 From the paired samples test that the significance value of ρ value is 0,000, it means that it is smaller than α (0.05), which shows that there is an influence of cold compresses on perineal wound pain in the Ar-Rahma Ogan Ilir Palembang Maternity Clinic 2019. Conclusion. Discussion Based on the results of the study, researchers assumed pain management with non-pharmacology could reduce pain in the perineal wound by using cold compress techniques. Cold compresses on pain in the perineal wound are very influential, and their physiological impact is vasoconstriction in blood vessels, reducing pain, and decreasing the activity of nerve endings in the muscles.
