Determination and measurement of stress level on patients during needle related invasive applications are important. It is more important for patients who experienced injection first time and child patients during bloodletting or blood donating. Research on during injection revealed that stress based negative signs of needle-related applications on patients might be observed in the future life when a comfortable operation is not provided to patients. It is known that blood pressure, pulse, body temperature, etc. are commonly used measurements as a stress indicator. Classification and interpretation of measured values are essential to provide low stress and comfortable injection procedure for patients. In this study, measured and recorded blood pressure, pulse, respiration values of patients with different ages and sex were used.This data from different ages and sex is accepted as input for Fuzzy Logic and evaluated. By using this developed algorithm, evaluation of stress level of patients with Fuzzy Logic might provide faster, precise results and comfortable injection procedure in time with low stress.
