Effectiveness of Learning Package Regarding Care of a Patient on Mechanical Ventilator to the Staff Nurses of a Selected Hospital in Gwalior

Sunil Namdev

Abstract: This study evaluates the effectiveness of a structured learning package designed to enhance the knowledge and skills of staff nurses in caring for patients on mechanical ventilators within the intensive care setting. With the backdrop of mechanical ventilation being a critical, non-curative intervention aimed at supporting patients until they remain independent breathing capabilities, the necessity for proficient nursing care becomes paramount. Ventilator-associated pneumonia, a significant risk associated with prolonged mechanical ventilation, underscores the need for stringent adherence to aseptic techniques during endotracheal suctioning. Through a blend of theoretical education and practical demonstrations, the research assesses improvements in the nurse?s knowledge and skillsets, as evidenced by higher post-test scores compared to pre-test evaluations. Emphasizing the importance of specialized training for nurses, this study highlights the role of comprehensive educational programs in mitigating complications, facilitating patient recovery, and enhancing the overall quality of care in critical care environments.
