A study to evaluate the effectiveness of oral sucrose solution in terms of reduction of pain during painful procedure among neonates admitted in selected hospital at GONDA. The study was conducted in S.C.P.M Hospital at Gonda. Posttest only control group quasi experimental design was used for this study. The sample consist of 60 neonates, 30 neonates were in experimental group and 30 neonates in control group. The samples were selected by purposive sampling technique. The mean posttest pain score of experimental group was 4.43 where as in control group it was 8.2, the mean difference value was 3.77. In comparison of posttest pain score of experimental group and control group the calculated T value was 16.5, indicates that the difference has not occurred by chance, it could be due to the effect of sucrose solution. The tool used for this study was Neonatal pain assessment scale which measures behavioral and physical characteristics of neonate during painful procedure.
