ABSTRACT

Background: Of all healthcare professionals, nurses are often the first to discover a patient of cardiopulmonary arrest (CPA) in any part of the hospital, be it the “emergencyâ€Â or the “in-patientâ€Â wards. Therefore, it is very important to know competency of knowledge & practices in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) for save the life of patient. Therefore, the study aims to assess knowledge and practices and to evaluate the impact of an educational intervention about cardiopulmonary resuscitation among nursing students and nurses at our institute. Material and method: In education intervention study, we have enrolled nursing students and nurses of tertiary care teaching hospital, Vadodara, Gujarat (India). The educational intervention in the form training was given and divided into a theoretical and a practical part. For the purpose of study, questionnaires regarding knowledge and practices were developed and peer viewed by expert faculty of our institute. The questionnaires were same in pre-training and post training. At the end of study, we had evaluated the effectiveness of educational intervention among nurses and nursing students by using paired t-test. Results: In study results, knowledge score in nursing students in pre-training 4.14 ± 1.38 and post training 9.54±1.46 (p<0.0001, t=20.47, paired t-test), in practice score pre training 3.51±1.04 and post training 4.54±1.12 (p=0.007, t=3.73). In nurses, knowledge score in pre-training 5.81±2.21 and post training 10.15±1.44 (p<0.0001, t=19.82) in practices score, pre training 2.27±1.02 and post training 4.25±1.08 (p<0.0001, t=18.70). Both the results were also found statistically significant in nurses as well as nursing students. Conclusion : We conclude from present study, there are significant increased knowledge and practices of Basic life support (BLS)/ CPR after giving training to nursing students as well as nurses. That means education to the health care professional lead to not only improvement but also update their knowledge regarding BLS/CPR.
