Background & Aim: Vaccination is the most common painful procedure in childhood. This study aimed to compare the effect of Hugo point massage with and without ice on the injection-related pain of pentavalent vaccine in infants.
Methods & Materials: This study is a blind randomized clinical trial (IRCT2016052127982N1) conducted on 90 healthy, two-month old infants with normal weight, referred to Gonabad Fayazbakhsh health center to inject pentavalent vaccine in 2016. Infants were randomly assigned into three groups including 1) massage on Hugo’s point with ice 2) massage on Hugo’s point without ice and 3) control group. Data collection tool includes demographic information form and infant’s pain measurement tool. Data were analyzed using Chi-square test, KruskalWallis test, analysis of variance and post-hoc Tukey HSD through the SPSS software version 16.
Results: There was no significant difference in pain intensity before vaccination between three groups. After vaccination, mean pain score for the first group was 7.70±1.26, for the second group was 8.03±1.06 and for the third group was 9.23±0.89. Also, crying duration in the first group was 35.03±23.12, in the second group was 40.39±21.62 and in the third group was 61.28±24.00. Both variables in the intervention groups were significantly lower compared to the control group (P<0.001) but there was no significant difference between the two intervention groups (P=0.586 and P=0.654).
Conclusion: Hugo’s point massage with and without ice can reduce the injection-related pain of pentavalent vaccine in infants and be used as a simple non-pharmaceutical method available to control vaccination pain.
