Efficacy of Planned Teaching Regarding Care of Patients with Chest Tube Drainage among Nurses

Vaishali Sukhdeorao Soge, Ancy Ramesh, Vidya Sahare


Abstract: Chest drains are a widespread intervention for patients admitted to acute respiratory or cardiothoracic care areas. These are either inserted intraoperatively or as part of the conservative management of a respiratory illness or thoracic injury. Anecdotally there appears to be a lack of consensus among nurses on the major principles of chest drain management. Many decisions tend to be based on personal factors rather than sound clinical evidence. This inconsistency of treatment regimes, together with the lack of evidence-based nursing care, creates a general uncertainty regarding the care of patients with chest drains. Thus the present study was conducted to assess the efficacy of planned teaching regarding care of patients with chest tube drainage among staff nurses working in selected hospitals in Maharashtra. Methods: The researcher conducted the study using an evaluatory research approach.50 samples were selected through non probability convenient sampling from selected hospitals. The tool used for data collection was a self administered structured knowledge questionnaire. Results: Overall Mean percentage of pre test knowledge score was 51.94 % and post test knowledge score was 80.68 %. The mean percentage gain from pre and post test was 28.74 %. The tabulated value for z was 1.96. The calculated Z value is much higher than the tabulated value which is statistically acceptable level of significance. Conclusion: The investigator concludes that the knowledge of the staff nurses was significantly improved after receiving the information in the form of planned teaching regarding care of patient with chest tube drainage.
