Objective: To assess of the effectiveness of Play Therapy Intervention Program on Physiological Parameters and Behavioral Distress of Children undergoing Echocardiography Examination. after the interventional program (pre-test and post-test )approach at Al-khansa'a Hospital in Mosul City.
Method and Material: Quantitative research, " a quasi-experimental design" The study was using pre-test and post-test approach for study group and control group, Prior to beginning data collecting, the study group's participants underwent testing (5 June 2022 - 23rd of December 2022). The number of sample was (60). children were randomly allocated to two groups: (experimental group) the TV group watched cartoons with sound during the examination, some other toys according to the stages of the age (age groups) and the (control group) received usual care.
Results: The findings of the study show increase improvement in all physiological parameters except no significant oxygen saturation at the values were significant at P<0.05 levels and The findings of the study show increase improvement in all The total assessment of Behavioral scale distress about children during echocardiography examination in the experimental group shows that they Behavioral scale distress during the posttest time (6.083M±SD= 23.7000±7.01796) Significant for experimental group & improvement compared with control group on the level of Behavioral Distress .
Conclusions: The results of the study demonstrated that play therapy boosted improvement in all physiological measures, with the exception of no significant oxygen saturation at the values were significant at P<0.05 levels and shows that they Behavioral scale distress during the post-test time Significant for experimental group & improvement compared with control group on the level of Behavioral Distress.
