Neonates frequently undergo various painful procedures without analgesia and routinely experienced pain in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. The issue of pain management among new born has been largely neglected and commonly overlooked in most of the clinical settings can lead to long term adverse consequences and deleterious effect. Administrating sucrose before painful procedure like venipuncture can relief pain in new born. The present study was carried out in (NICU) of IMS and SUM Hospital, Bhubaneswar with the purpose to determine the effect of 24% oral sucrose administration on pain reduction during venipuncture. 30 neonates undergoing venipuncture were selected through purposive sampling. The pain level was assessed by using Neonatal Infant Pain Scale (NIPS) with routine care during venipuncture and then same neonates were administered 24% sucrose solution orally just 2 minutes before undergoing venipuncture second time. A highly significant reduction of pain during venipuncture in experimental group was observed at (p<0.001, t=9.38).
