Abstract

Background: Intelligent, consciousness, pre-operative nursing contributes much to having the patient to achieve an optimum condition that favours a satisfactory postoperative progress and minimizes the possibility of complications. Objectives: This study was aimed at finding the effectiveness of preoperative planned teaching programme on prevention of postoperative pulmonary complications among patients undergoing elective abdominal surgeries. Settings and Design: The study was conducted in Kasturba Hospital, Manipal, using true experimental post test only control group design. Methods and Materials: Purposive sampling technique was used to collect the data. Sample size comprised of 40 subjects, 20 each in experimental and control group. The data was collected using demographic proforma, structured observational and morbidity checklists. Content validity and reliability of the tool were established. Results: Majority of the subjects 75% in experimental group and 70% subjects in the control group were in age group of 36-50 years. Thirty percentages (30%) of subjects in the control group have undergone hernia repairs, whereas in experimental group, majority of the subjects (65%) have undergone other surgeries than hernia repair such as cholecystectomy, appendicectomy, laparotomy etc. The study showed that pre-operative planned teaching programme was effective in terms of appropriate post-operative practices and prevention of post-operative pulmonary complications. Significant association was found between duration of surgery and post-operative practice score (2=6.5, p=0.038) among experimental group and type of the surgery and postoperative score among control group (2=15.048, p=0.02). The study concluded that planned teaching programme was found more effective in experimental group.
