P. Manimegalai [9]


Abstract: Background: pre - eclampsiais a multisystem pregnancy disorder characterized by variable degree of placental malperfusion, with release of soluble factors into the circulation. These factors causes maternal vascular endothelial injury, which leads to hypertension and multi organ injury. Objectives: To assess the level of knowledge regarding factor influencing the use of magnesium sulphate in eclampsia and preeclampsia among Staff nurses at SMVMCH, Puducherry. - To associate the level of knowledge regarding factor influencing the use of magnesium sulphate in eclampsia and preeclampsia among Staff nurses with their Demographic variables. Methods: A Quantitative approach adopted for this present study. Descriptive research design chosen for the present study by using Convenient sampling technique was sample size was 30 staff nurses with factor influencing the use of magnesium sulphate in eclampsia and preeclampsia. The data collection period was one week. Major Findings in the study: The study was conducted at SMVMCH, Puducherry. The period of data collection was 1 weeks, the data were collected from the 30 - samples of staff nurses by using convenient sampling technique and interview by demographic data. Represent Frequency and percentage wise distribution of knowledge regarding factor influencing the use of magnesium sulphate in eclampsia and preeclampsia among Staff nurses were less competent 8 (26.4%), Moderately competent 17 (56.1%), Highly competent 5 (16.5%) respectively. depicts that the demographic income and previous experience in department had shown statistically significant association regarding factor influencing the use of magnesium sulphate in eclampsia and preeclampsia among Staff nurses with chi - square value of X2 is 0.0106 and 0.0060 at p<0.05 level. The other demographic variables had not shown statistically significant association regarding factor influencing the use of magnesium sulphate in eclampsia and preeclampsia among Staff nurses. Conclusion: the study shown that, shown statistically significant association regarding factor influencing the use of magnesium sulphate in eclampsia and preeclampsia among Staff nurses with chi - square value of X2 is 0.0106 and 0.0060 at p<0.05 level.
