Abstract
Objective: To compare the benefits of ventilated nasal packing with traditional vaseline guaze nasal packing.
Study Design: Randomized controlled trial.
Place and Duration of Study: This study was conducted at CMH Multan, from Jun 2014 to Dec 2014.
Material and Methods: In this study, sample size of 80 patients was calculated using WHO calculator. Patients
were divided in two groups using lottery method endotracheal tube and piece of surgical glove filled with ribbon
guaze was utilized for fabricated ventilated nasal pack and compared with traditional nasal packs. Nasal
obstruction and sleep disturbance were studied at eight hours and twenty-four hours following surgery using
visual analog scale.
Results: Mean nasal obstruction with ventilated nasal pack was 45.62 ± 6.17 and with Vaseline nasal pack was
77.67 ± 4.85 which was statistically significant (p=0.001) in both the groups. Mean sleep disturbance in both the
groups was 46.32 ± 5.23 and 68.75 ± 2.70 respectively which was statistically significant (p=0.001) in both the
groups.
Conclusion: Patients with ventilated nasal packs were found to have better tolerance to nasal packs due to less
nasal obstruction and sleep disturbance.
