A STUDY TO ASSESS THE EFFECTIVENESS OF DEMONSTRATION PROGRAM ON CPR AMONG GENERAL POPULATION IN SELECTED RURAL AREA OF MYSURU
One of the most catastrophic outcomes of coronary heart disease and the most frequent cause of death is sudden cardiac arrest. If cardiac arrest occurs in an out-of-hospital setting. The chance of survival is very slim. The CPR is a lifesaving technique that combines chest compression and artificial ventilation. This technique has evolved over the last 50 years, and has caused an advance in research. The field of CPR continues to be dynamic with the emergence of new therapies and improvements in systems of care. However, despite significant advances in the field of resuscitation science, important knowledge gaps persist. The aim of the study is to asses the effectiveness of demonstration program regarding CPR among rural people. The study adopted quasi experimental control group only design with 120 samples divided equal number of participants into experimental and control group. The study tool were validated and found reliable. The study reveals that majority 65% of rural people were having good knowledge and 35% of them have average knowledge in experimental group and in control group 100 % of them have poor knowledge. The demonstration program was not effective regarding CPR in rural population since the computed `t´ 4.67 was significant at 0.05 level of significance. In experimental group the education, received prior CPR training, performed CPR before variables were found not significant and personal variables viz. age, gender, awareness to provide CPR outside hospital, need of skill training on CPR found to be significant association at 0.05 level of significance. Conclusion: The study concluded that the demonstration programme found effective in enhancing knowledge in experimental group. There is a significant association for selected variables viz. age, gender, awareness to provide CPR outside hospital, need of skill training on CPR in experimental group and in control group significant association found only for Age.[Full Text Article]
