The existing pre-test knowledge regarding early signs immediate
treatment of angina pectoris patient is identified by pre-test score and it is
reflected that the small proportion of staff nurses (i.e.1.67%) were in Good
(21-30) category which are aware about cardiac while a large proportion
of staff nurse (78.33%) were in Poor (0-10) category and not aware about
plotting of the cardiac immediate treatment of angina pectoris patient
which needed careful attention towards the present problem. 12 staff
nurse (45.0%) were observed in Average (11-20) category.
The observations reflect the need of awareness about immediate treatment
of angina pectoris patient.
This study shows that there is a significant increase in knowledge of staff
nurses after giving the information booklet. The t-value is 20.1254 for
knowledge (p<0.0001). There was significant association between
knowledge on immediate treatment of angina pectoris patient and age,
professional education, clinical experience in cardiac unit, and the gender
of staff nurses on immediate treatment of angina pectoris patient working
in cardiac unit.
Key words: Angina pectoris, coronary heart disease
