Abstract

An experimental study was conducted to compare the effect of honey versus betadine on episiotomy wound healing among 60 postnatal women (30 - honey group, 30 - betadine group) in Government Taluk Hospital, Kundapura between rd rd 23 October 2011 and 23 November 2011. Data was collected using episiotomy wound assessment scale. Findings revealed that in the honey group on day 1 the episiotomy wound assessment score mean is 8.03, on day 5 mean score reduced to 0.27. In betadine group day 1 mean is 8.23 and on day 5 mean score reduced to 1.4. There was a mean difference of 7.8 in the honey group and 6.83 in the betadine group. The obtained 't' value on day 2 (3.818), day 3 (2.967), day 4 (4.2), day 5 (4.02) found to be significant (p< 0.05) at 0.01 and 0.05 level of significance. This reveals that as the day progresses episiotomy wound healing was good in both the groups but it was faster in honey group than in betadine group. Study results denoted that application of honey has significant influence on episiotomy wound healing.
