Abstract

A STUDY TO ASSESS THE EFFECTIVENESS OF EARLY AMBULATION ON POST OPERATIVE RECOVERY OF PATIENTS WHO HAVE UNDERGONE ABDOMINAL SURGERY AT RAILWAY HOSPITAL, PERAMBUR, CHENNAI

M. Deepa*

ABSTRACT

A Quasi experimental study was conducted to assess the effectiveness of early ambulation on postoperative recovery of patients who have undergone abdominal surgery.60 patients were assigned to the experimental (n=30) and control group(n=30) from post operative ICU and surgical wards. Level of dependency in performing activities of daily living(ADL) and level of discomfort was assessed. The results revealed a highly significant decrease in level of dependency in performing ADL and level of discomfort following early ambulation(p<0.001), in comparison with patients in control group. The study concluded that early ambulation should be promoted as an important nursing intervention to enhance postoperative recovery among surgical patients.
