Abstract

This study was designed as a randomized controlled study to determine the effect of two different methods (maintenance with normal water and maintenance with povidone iodine) on the wound healing process used in episiotomy of vaginal delivery primiparous women. The population of the study was 120 primiparous women giving vaginal birth with episiotomy at the University Obstetrics and Gynecology Clinic. The sample size of the study was 120, for using water (60) and for using povidone iodine (60). The data were collected by the researcher using face-to-face interview technique. The participant presentation form and the REEDA Scale were used as data collection tools. The average age of the women participating in the study was 25±5. 36% of the women participated to the study. Of the women in the group, 40% are middle school graduates and 81% are housewives. The women who took part in the study were in the 4th hour, 24-48. as a result of evaluations of REEDA scoring between the hours and the 7th day; There was no statistically significant difference between the groups that performed episiotomy treatment with water and those who treated with betadine (p>0.05) in terms of improvement of episiotomy wound.
