    THE EFFECTIVENESS OF PLANNED TEACHING PROGRAMME ON KNOWLEDGE AND PRACTICE REGARDING CARE OF PATIENT WITH IMPLANTABLE CARDIOVERTER DEFIBRILLATOR (ICD)
    Rakesh Yadav, Irasangappa Mudakavi*

    Technique and indications for implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) placement have changed tremendously since the inception of this therapy in 1980. Initially, most of the patients who received ICD therapy either showed evidence of sustained ventricular tachycardia (VT) or were survivors of sudden cardiac arrest. Nurses play a crucial role in patient education and adaptation to having an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator. An evaluative research approach, pre-experimental one group pre-test and post-test research design was adopted. The study populations were staff nurses working in ICU. Convenient sampling technique was used to recruit 80 ICU staff nurses from Shekhawati Hospital and Research Centre, Jaipur. Ethical permission to conduct study was taken from hospital authority and confidentiality and anonymity was maintained throughout the study. Consent was taken from each subject prior to data collection. Self-structured tools with high reliability were used to collect the data. The collected data was analyzed by descriptive and inferential statistics. The analyzed shown that the total knowledge scores of the pre-test, out of 80 subjects 66.25% (53) had inadequate, 22.50% (18) had moderate and 11.25% (9) had adequate knowledge. However, post-test out of 80 subjects, 5% (4) had inadequate knowledge, 27.50% (22) had moderate and 67.50% (54) had adequate knowledge level regarding care of the patient with ICD among ICU staff nurses and out of 80 subjects 52.50% (42) had inadequate, 37.50% (30) had moderate and 10% (8) had adequate practice level regarding care of the patient with ICD in pre-test. However, after administration of PTP, post-test out of 80 subjects, 12.50% (10) had inadequate level, 27.50% (22) had moderate practice level and 60% (48) had adequate practice level regarding care of the patient with ICD among ICU staff nurses. The overall pre-test and post-test means were 14.15 and 23.66 with SD of 4.81 and 3.64, respectively and ‘t’ value 15.85 which was highly significant at P<0.05 level. The overall pre-test and post-test practice level means were 5.66 and 8.78 with SD of 2.07 and 1.88 respectively and ‘t’ value 12.81 which was highly significant at P<0.05 level. The study concluded that there was a significant increase in knowledge and level of practice after the Planned Teaching Programme (PTP). Hence it showed that PTP was effective.
