Clinical Trial Summary

The aim of the study which was planned in a randomized controlled experimental design, it was aimed to determine the effect of Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) application on pain level before mobilization in the postoperative period in children.


Clinical Trial Description

Children can often experience chronic muscle, bone, joint pain, headache and abdominal pain, and acutely experience pain due to postoperative and procedural procedures. Effective management of childhood pain is emphasized as a health priority by the World Health Organization and pain communities. The findings of various epidemiological studies emphasized that a significant proportion (49% to 64%) of children receiving treatment in a hospital setting received inadequate pain management services despite the increase in available knowledge and treatments. One of the situations in which pediatric patients encounter acute pain is the postoperative period. Mobilization is delayed in patients who cannot provide adequate pain control, and accordingly, serious complications such as impaired tissue perfusion, atelectasis and deep vein thrombosis may develop. There are studies on the use of TENS, one of the methods used in non-pharmacological pain management, in postoperative pain management in adults. Studies on pain management in children for TENS application are very limited today. There was no evidence for the effectiveness of TENS application applied before mobilization in the postoperative period in children. ;
