Abstract
Background: Ventilator weaning is the process of gradually withdrawing artificial ventilation to the intubated patients for short or long time in critical care setting. Weaning patients from ventilator is complex and challenging task for nurses and knowing weaning criteria is most essential component for getting successful outcome for the patients with mechanical ventilation. Purpose: To find out nurses’ knowledge regarding weaning criteria of the patients with mechanical ventilation. Methodology: A descriptive cross sectional study design was used with 57 nurses working in critical care unit of a teaching hospital, Bharatpur, Chitwan. The non probability, enumerative sampling technique was used. Data was collected by using self administered semi structured questionnaire during month of July, 2016. Data was analysed by using descriptive (frequency, percentage, mean and standard deviation) and inferential statistics (chi square). Results: The results showed that level of knowledge regarding weaning criteria was adequate (45.6%), whereas 54.4% had inadequate. The significant influencing variables for weaning criteria among nurses were professional experience (p=<0.001), professional experience in critical care area (p=<0.001), clinical areas (p=0.002) and age (p=0.006). Conclusion: It is concluded that the knowledge level of nurses working in critical care unit of a teaching hospital of Chitwan was inadequate. Therefore, in-service education on weaning criteria for nurses is needed and developing protocol on weaning criteria for nurses is highly important.
