The treatment was done 4 times post analgetic I and post analgetic II. Pain level was measured by VAS pain scale and conducted in  2 times the first after  analgesic 1, second measurement  after analgesic 2. The statistical test for analysis data used independent test t-test and paired t- test.Result: The results of independent t-test before the intervention is relatively the same. Meanwhile, after intervention the level of pain from intervention group which was cold pack decreased 3 (three) point and from control group (deep breathing relaxation) decreased 1 (one) point. The statictical analysis measurement showed that p value was 0,00.Conclusion: It is proved that the intervention  of cold pack has more effective than deep breathing relaxation.
