J. Melbin Jeyarani | Mary Rexline [2] | Blaze Asheetha Maria Rosario [2]

Abstract: Background: Patient preparation for any surgical procedure encompasses preoperative education, a crucial and widespread element. It is believed that the administration of preoperative instruction, incorporating a patient understanding of perioperative procedures, anticipated changes following surgery, patient contentment, analgesic utilisation, medication administration techniques, coping mechanisms for physical challenges, independence in mobility, and readiness for discharge, influences their behaviour positively in that context. Given its significant medical impact, implementing preoperative video - assisted instructions is particularly crucial for preventing postoperative complications. Methodology: A quasi - experimental post - test - only control group design employed a quantitative evaluative approach. The study used three instruments: sample characteristics, a numerical pain intensity rating scale, and a modified Hamilton anxiety rating scale. The sample included 40 women undergoing elective caesarean section, selected through purposive sampling technique. Descriptive and inferential statistics were used for data analysis. Results: The study found that video - assisted preoperative instructions effectively reduced postoperative pain and anxiety in women undergoing elective caesarean sections. The study suggests expanding its scope to a larger scale with a comprehensive pre and postoperative care approach, including exercises, diet, hygiene, breastfeeding, rest, sleep, and newborn care.

Keywords: Video - assisted preoperative instructions, Postoperative pain, Postoperative anxiety, Women undergoing elective cesarean section.
