Impact of cryotherapy on arteriovenous fistula cannulation - oriented discomfort in hemodialysis patients at designated dialysis centres in Solapur, Maharashtra

Sandesh A Wamane

Pain during arteriovenous fistula (AVF) cannulation continues to be a significant issue in hemodialysis (HD) patients, leading to non-compliance with lifetime maintenance HD. The purpose of this study was to see if cryotherapy could reduce discomfort during AVF cannulation in HD patients at a tertiary care hospital in Solapur, Maharashtra. This is experimental research involving 63 patients undergoing HD by AVF. The patients were randomly assigned to two groups: experimental (got cryotherapy) or control (did not get cryotherapy). Used the Wong-Baker pain rating scale version to calculate the pain score. The experimental group had a significant difference in pre-and post-intervention pain levels, but the control group had no difference. Based on a P 0.05. Rejected the null hypothesis. Our findings imply that cryotherapy is an effective treatment for AVF cannulation-related discomfort in adult patients undergoing HD. As a result, cryotherapy is suggested to be investigated as a supplementary technique to alleviate pain associated with AVF cannulation.
