Rajni Thapa [2] | Prashant Thakur


Abstract: Endotracheal suctioning of mechanically ventilated patients can result in saving the life of the person if carried out with proper guidelines and practice. The present study was conducted to assess the effectiveness of video assisted programme on knowledge and practice regarding Endotracheal suctioning of mechanically ventilated patients among B. Sc. Nursing internship students. The objective of study was to find out the effectiveness of video assisted programme on endotracheal suctioning of mechanically ventilated patients among B. Sc. Nursing internship students. A Quasi experimental Pre test Post test design was selected. RESULTS There was a significant difference between pre test and post test knowledge score (t = 23.56*) and practice score (t = 36.43*). Video assisted programme was found to be highly effective in enhancing the knowledge 48.92 % (12.23 2.84) and practice 70.24 % (17.56 2.64). The correlation between knowledge and practice was found to be highly significant (r = 0.90). CONCLUSION The study had shown that VAP was effective in enhancing the knowledge and practice of students as majority of the B. Sc. Nursing internship students had adequate knowledge and practice regarding Endotracheal suctioning of mechanically ventilated patients after VAP.
