Abstract

A study was conducted to assess the effectiveness of pre operative orientation programme on post operative anxiety among the mothers of children undergoing cardiac surgery at selected hospital in Chennai Objectives 1. To assess the level of post operative anxiety among the mothers of children undergoing cardiac surgery in the experimental and control group. 2. To compare the effectiveness of pre-operative orientation programme on level of postoperative anxiety among the mothers of children undergoing cardiac surgery between experimental and control group. 3. To associate the level of post operative anxiety among mothers of children undergoing cardiac surgery in the experimental group with their selected demographic variable. Methodology A true experimental post test only design was used . The study was conducted at Madras Medical Mission Hospital. 50 samples were selected using simple random sampling technique. Standardized state trait anxiety inventory (STAI) scale was used to assess the anxiety level of mothers. Pre-operative orientation programme which include information transfer programme and hospital tour was given to experimental group. Post operative level of anxiety among mothers were assessed on the 2nd postoperative day for both experimental and control group to assess STAI scale. The collected data was analyzed using both descriptive and inferential statistics. Findings With regards to level of state anxiety in experimental group, 18(75%) had moderate anxiety, 7(28%) had mild level anxiety and none of them had severe anxiety and considering the level of anxiety in control group, majority 24(96%) had moderate anxiety and 1 (4%) had severe anxiety. With regards to trait anxiety of the mothers in experimental group 13(75%) had moderate anxiety and 12(48%) had only mild level anxiety and in control group 23(92%) had moderate anxiety and 2(8%) had severe anxiety. The mean value of post operative state anxiety of experimental group was 43.36 with standard deviation of 9.48 (43.36±9.48) and the control group was 50.08 with standard deviation of 6.02 (50.08±6.02). The independent t test value was 3.13 which indicated statistically significant difference between experimental and control group at p<0.05. The average mean post operative trait anxiety of experimental group was 38.8 with standard deviation of 4.9 (38.8±4.9) and the control group was 51.16 with standard deviation of 10.9 (51.16±10.9). The independent t test value was 5.09 which indicated statistically significant difference between experimental and control group at p<0.05. The findings revealed that there was a statistically significant association was found between the level of postoperative state anxiety and the demographic variable, type of family (�2=4.5 at p=0.05) level and there was no association for other variable. The findings revealed that there was a statistically significant association was found between the level of postoperative trait anxiety and the demographic variable occupation (�2=5.15 at p=0.05) and type of family level ( �2=5.54 at p=0.05) and there was no association for other variable The findings indicated that mothers in nuclear family had more state anxiety and mothers of unemployed and nuclear family had more trait anxiety. Conclusion The study concluded that pre-operative orientation programme was effective in reducing the anxiety level of mothers of children undergoing cardiac surgery.� � � �
