Abstract :

 Objectives: To find out the effect of chewing–gum on peristalsis in post–caesarean patients.

Materials and Methods: In prospective study, 90 patients with post–caesarean section were dived into 2 groups– study group (n=45) and control group (n=45).Study group patients were given chewing–gum with addition to standard regime and control group patients were given only standard regime.

Results: Both samples were comparable regarding demographic characters, intraoperative, and post–operative care. There was a significant difference in the return of bowel movement (8.8 versus 17.5 hours), first feeling of hunger (7.2 versus 12.5hours),first passage of flatus (17.5 versus 26.4 hours) first defecation (27.1 versus 37.2 hours) respectively in study and control group.All the patients’ chewing–gum was tolerated well without any side effects.

Conclusion: Study concludes that post–caesarean bowel mobility can be accelerated by gum chewing andit is cost–effective, safe, tolerable.
