A comparative study to assess the effectiveness of Sumag dressing versus glycerin dressing on patients with thrombophlebitis. Objectives for the study were effectiveness of Glycerin dressing and Sumag dressing on thrombophlebitis patients. Simple random sampling technique was adopted to select 60 patients with thrombophlebitis. Visual Infusion phlebitis scale and demographic checklist was used for data collection. Experimental approach and comparative experimental design as adopted for this study. The major findings of the study were, in this study the baseline Mean ± SD score of thrombophlebitis level pretest in 1st group (Sumag group) was 3.166 ±0.698 and after Sumag dressing, the post-test mean ± SD was 0.4 ±.498. The t value for pre-test post-test is 30.066 in Sumag group. The p value in Sumag group is <0.01. This shows that there was gradual reduction in phlebitis mean score and SD score after intervention and the t score is significant. Hence the topical application of Sumag is effective on IV induced thrombophlebitis.
