Abstract
According to sudden cardiac arrest associations, It has been estimated that SCD claims more than 7,000,000 lives per year worldwide [1]. It is proved that Effective basic life support giving soon after cardiac arrest doubles the chance of survival [2]. Basic life support by nurses who are usually first on the scene provides the best opportunity to minimize the time to initiate cardio pulmonary resuscitation. Hence the main objective of the study was to find out the knowledge and practice of adult basic life support among staff nurses and to evaluate the effectiveness of structured teaching program on knowledge and practice regarding adult basic life support. 30 staff nurses from Upasana hospital, kollam were selected as the samples by using non probability convenient sampling technique. Pre experimental one group pretest posttest study design was employed to collect the data from staff nurses before and after the implementation of structured teaching program. The study was statistically significant at.001 level. The total mean post- test knowledge score (26.80) was significantly higher than the mean pretest score (12.36). The total mean posttest practice score (26.80) of adult basic life support was significantly higher than the mean pretest practice score regarding adult basic life support. Therefore, the study proved that the structured teaching program was an effective technique in imparting knowledge and practice regarding adult basic life support among staff nurses.
