Background: Strength is a lot like oxygen. We don’t really pay much attention to it-unless it’s missing. The aim of the study was to assess the effectiveness of video assisted teaching programme on knowledge regarding hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) among B.Sc. Nursing students at Shri. J.G.C.H.S. College of nursing, Ghataprabha, Belagavi.
Methods: Research design; a pre experimental one group pre-test post-test design was used to carry out the study. Setting: The study was conducted in Shri. J.G.C.H.S. College of Nursing, Ghataprabha, Belagavi. Students: simple random sampling technique of 2nd and 3rd year B. Sc. Nursing students (50).
Tool: Part-I structured questionnaire on demographic data. Part-II structured knowledge questionnaire to assess the level of knowledge regarding HBOT.
Results: The pre-test findings revealed that majority (60%) of the students were having average knowledge and 40% of the students were having the poor knowledge regarding HBOT, with the mean score of 14.50 ± 3.564. The findings from post-test represents that majority (68%) were having good knowledge and 32% of the respondents were having the average knowledge regarding HBOT with the mean score of 34.40 ± 2.330. The significant association was found between Gender and post-test knowledge scores (x2 = 3.687 df=1 p< 0.05).
Conclusion: The investigator concluded that the video-assisted teaching programme can improve the knowledge regarding Hyper baric oxygen therapy among B.Sc. Nursing students.
