Introduction: Post Dural Puncture Headache (PDPH) is an iatrogenic complication of spinal anaesthesia (SP) and has devastating consequences.
Aim: To assess the effect of Coffee on occurrence of PDPH in post-operative patients of Interventional and control groups by comparing the mean PDPH pain scores related to demographic profiles and spinal anaesthesia procedures.
Materials and Methods: An experimental approach in which 60 patients were recruited from the accessible population and was further allocated randomly to Interventional (30) and Control (30) groups. The patients were compared the demographical profiles viz. age, education and marital status and spinal anaesthesia procedures viz. surgery types, needle size and amount of fluid intake related to PDPH pain scores by Numerical Rating Scale after administration of three doses (130mg caffeine in 150ml) of coffee at intervals of 12hrs in Interventional group and only routine care in control group.
Results: The main findings in this study were that the incidence of PDPH is lower in Interventional group compared to control group with statistically significant difference (P<0> The use coffee is an effective, safe, non-invasive treatment for prevention of PDPH.
Keywords: Spinal anaesthesia, Post dural puncture headache, Coffee supplement, Numerical rating scale, Pain therapy.
