Abstract: A Quasi experimental study was conducted to evaluate the effectiveness ofLukewarm water compress on breast engorgement among postpartum mothers admitted in selected maternity hospitals, Jaipur.Aim: The aim of the study was to assess the effectiveness of lukewarm water compress on breast engorgement among postpartum mothers .Materials and methods: Quasi experimental non randomized control group design.The study was carried out in the postnatal wards of NIMS hospital and Rajnish hospital, Jaipur.60 postpartum mothers(30 each in experimental and control group) with breast engorgement were purposively selected for the study.The postpartum mothers in experimental group was given lukewarm water compress applicationand postpartum mothers in control group received hospital routine care.The data collection was done with the help ofdemographic proforma ,Six point breast engorgement scale and Numerical pain intensity scale.The statistical method forthe demographic variables was presented by using frequencies and percentages. Mean , Standard Deviation and Hedge’s G was used to evaluate effectiveness of lukewarm water compress on breast engorgement among postpartum mothers.Further statistical significance on the effectiveness of lukewarm water was analyzed using paired T test . Chi square test and p value was used to find out association between breast engorgement score and selected demographic variables of the samples. Results: Result revealed that result shows that in experimental group mean post-test(2.2) was lower than mean pre-test(3.9) of experimental group which shows lukewarm water is effective in decreasing breast engorgement. And computed P value 0.00046 is less than established P value .05. which revealed that there is a significant difference between experimental group and control group post test breast engorgement score. The mean post test(2.2) in experimental group was lower than mean pre-test(3.9) of experimental group which shows lukewarm water is effective in decreasing breast engorgement. The mean in experimental group ( 2.2) was lower than mean in control group (3.2).Calculated ‘t’ value 4.3 is more than tabled ‘t’ value 1.6 at the degree of freedom 29,Calculated p value is 0.00031. Both t and p value show the significant difference between control group breast engorgement score and experimental group breast engorgement score at post test .Calculated Hedge’s G is 1.2 which showed that lukewarm water compress application cause large effect on breast engorgement which can be observed easily. Conclusion: The study revealed that lukewarm water compressis beneficial for relieving breast engorgement among postpartum mothers.
