Pooja Soni [9]

Abstract: An important development in the management of labour was the introduction of the partogram. Friedmen discovered partograph in 1954. It is modified by Hugh Philpott in 1972 to identify abnormally slow labour. A partograph is a representation of the changes that occur in labour, including cervical dilatation, fetal heart rate, maternal pulse, blood pressure and temperature. It also shows a numerical record of features such as urine output and the volume and type of intravenous infusions (including oxytocin drips). It is therefore possible at a glance to identify deviations from normal in any of this variables. A partograph is a graphical record of the observations made of a women in labour. and also check the progress of labour and salient conditions of the mother and fetus. METHOD: The research approach adopted for the study was evaluative with one group pre-test post-test design was used to assess the knowledge regarding partograph. The sample consisted of 50 student nurses, who are available at the time of study. Non probability purposive sampling method was used for the selection of samples. The instrument for the data collection was structured knowledge questionnaire. Part A: Consists of socio- demographic data. Part B: Consists of 20 items (structured knowledge questionnaire) to assess the knowledge regarding partogarph. The data obtained was analyzed by using descriptive and inferential statistics in terms of frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation paired ‘t’ test. RESULTS The mean post-test knowledge score (15.5) of the GNM. students was higher than their mean pre-test knowledge score (13.3). There was reduction in the standard deviation from pre-test (2.215) to post-test (1.81). the mean post- test knowledge score (27.3 %) of student nurses on partograph was higher than the mean pre-test knowledge score (13.3 %) with the mean difference of 8.3 % The obtained mean difference was found to be statistically significant evident from the obtained t value (1.73 %).
