Cardiovascular diseases exert a huge burden on individuals and society, with coronary heart disease the single most common cause of death in the United Kingdom and other developed countries. Improved clinical care has been responsible for around two fifths of the decline in mortality from coronary heart disease in England and Wales over the past decade. Developments in cardiac care, most of which have closely engaged nurses, have contributed to improvements in care for patients with acute myocardial infarction and other acute coronary syndromes
A quantitative approach using pre experimental pre-test post-test design with one group
100 staff nurses were selected using Non-Probability Convenience sampling technique in Mehsana District
Structured teaching programmed was given to the Staff nurses
Self-Structured Questionnaire and ‘yes’ & ‘no’ questions was used to assess the level of Knowledge of Staff nurses regarding cardiac emergencies
In this study overall the highest percentage in the demographic data including the Age group 55% (21-35y), Gender 71% (Female), Educational Status 82% (GNM), Total Year of Experience 65% (Less then 5 year), Folowing area who have presently worked 68% (Ward), Attend any training programmed 71% (Yes), and Previous Experience regarding cardiac emergencies 71% (Yes). The post-test knowledge mean score (21.45 ± 2.77) higherthan the mean pre-test knowledge score (9.72 ± 1.99). The calculated ‘t’ value (34.5) was greater than the table value (1.98) at 0.05 level of significance. The Structured teaching programmed was effective in increasing the knowledge regarding cardiac emergencies
