One group was control and two groups experimental. Control group received verbal routine education by nurses and experimental groups received a touch therapy and play with bubbles instrument. Tool collection was oucher scale. Data was collection with spss version 16.
Results: 54.7% mails and 66.6% at age 5 -8 years old participated in the study. The mean intensity of pain was in the control group (18.9), touch therapy group (11.2) and bubbles instrument (10.7). There was a statistically significant reduction in pain of experimental groups (p<0.05). There was no statistically significant between experimental groups at reduction in pain (p>0.05 (but there was a statistically significant between experimental groups and control group at reduction of intensity of pain (p<0.05).
Conclusion: The use of distraction techniques is a useful method for reduction in pain intensity catheter insertion in children.
