Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is It is published monthly.

Abstract

Aim: The aim of this study was to assess the effects of playing digital games on the pain levels and mobility states of children post-angiography.
Material and Methods: This randomized controlled trial was carried out at the pediatric cardiology clinic at a tertiary care hospital in eastern Turkey between October 2016 and July 2017. Eighty children (n=40 digital game group, n=40 control group) post-angiography were randomized. Children in the experimental group played digital games. Wong–Baker FACES pain rating scale (WBFS) and in-bed movement form were used.
Results: TThe difference between the means pretest WBFS scores of the digital game group and control group children was not significant (t=1.29; p>0.05). The difference between the mean posttest WBFS scores of the digital game group and control group children was statistically significant (t=9.63; p0.01). The mean number of in-bed movements was 2.45±1.53 in the digital game group and 13.25±18.92 in the control group. The difference between two groups in total mean number of in-bed movements was significant (p0.01).
Conclusion: For children who are post-angiography, playing digital games decreased pain levels and mobility states.

Keywords: Postoperative pain; mobility;game; video; distraction methods;congenital heart disease.
