: The purpose of this study was to examine the effects treatment by San- Yin-Jiao(SP6) pressure on labor pain, length of delivery time, and quantity of blood loss for primipara women.
: The design of this study was quasi-experimental and non-synchronized with non-equivalent control group. The subjects comprised 59 primipara women who underwent normal vaginal delivery. The experimental group(n=28) received SP6 pressure and the control group(n=31) received SP-6 touch. Data were collected using a structured questionnaire consisting of general characteristics, a labor pain scale by numeric rating scale, length of delivery time and quantity of blood loss. Collected data were analyzed as frequency, percentage, χ2-test, t-test and Repeated Measures ANOVA using SPSS 11.0 WIN Program.
: The labor pain scores were not significantly different between the two groups.The total length of delivery time in the SP-6 pressure group was significantly shorter than that of the SP-6 touch group(p=0.033). The quantity of blood loss was not significantly different between the two groups.
: These findings showed that SP-6 pressure was effective to shorten the length of delivery time, and that it did not increase blood loss. Therefore, SP6 pressure during labor could be applied as an effective nursing intervention. Nevertheless, to generalize the results it is necessary to replicate the study with a larger number of participants.
Key Words: San-Yin-Jiao(SP6), labor pain, delivery time, blood loss
