Abstract: Objective: To assess the knowledge regarding Mechanical Ventilator among staff nurses. To find out an association between knowledge scores of Mechanical Ventilator and its selected socio - demographic variables. Mechanical ventilation is an important nursing skill and is essential in the management of patients with respiratory and cardiac arrests. Appropriate skills are required to deliver prompt and correct treatment. In emergencies, the nurse is expected to interpret the need of mechanical ventilation accurately and respond immediately. Lack of these limits treatment and affects clinical outcomes. Hence, the study was aimed to determine the knowledge and to find out an association between knowledge scores with selected socio - demographic variables. Materials and methods: Descriptive study was performed on 100 staff nurses working in medical, surgical, and cardiac intensive care units of selected hospitals at Kolhapur. . Improvement in knowledge score was determined through the evaluative survey approach. Results: The calculated paired? value (tab = 7.38) was greater than tabulated value (tab = 2.02). Hence H1 is accepted. This indicates that the gain in knowledge score is statistically significant at P<0.05 level. i. e. H1: ???0, In present study, there was significant association between knowledge scores and selected socio - demographic variable like gender (tcal26.86 & tab 4.30), area of work (tcal05 & tab2.45) and staff nurses attended the in service education (tcal60 & tab 2.78). Therefore the calculated Chi - square values was higher than tabulated value at P<0.05 level of significance. Conclusion: The present study revealed that majority of staff nurses had average knowledge on mechanical ventilator.
