ASSESSING CRITICAL CARE NURSES’ KNOWLEDGE ON OXYGEN THERAPY IN COVID-19 PATIENT CARE IN TURKIYE; A MULTICENTER STUDY

Yasemin UsluMeltem Altay

Objective: Oxygen therapy for individuals with COVID-19 includes best practices for supportive management of acute respiratory syndrome. The aim of this study was to determine critical care nurses’ levels of knowledge on oxygen therapy during the COVID-19. Method: This was a descriptive study. The study was conducted with COVID-19 critical care nurses (N=446) in a total of 16 hospitals affiliated with a healthcare group in Turkey. A total of 322 nurses were included in the study. The data were collected via the Oxygen Therapy Information Form prepared based on the literature through Google survey. Results: According to the oxygen therapy subscales, the mean score of the nurses varied from 40.77 to 86.21, and their total mean score was 72.99 (fairly). The nurses’ knowledge on oxygen therapy was strongly correlated with their educational level and manner of work (p<0.05). Conclusions: It can be asserted that in oxygen therapy, their knowledge on nursing interventions was adequate; however, their knowledge on oxygen therapy definitions and concepts was inadequate. In order to develop patient safety concerning oxygen therapy in COVID-19 patients, it is recommended that training programs be planned and competencies of nurses be assessed. In order to qualify legal competence about the safe oxygen therapy, clear protocols and professional guidelines are recommended.

TÜRKİYE’DE COVID-19 TANILI HASTALARA BAKIM VEREN YOĞUN BAKIM HEMŞİRELERİNİN OKSİJEN TEDAVİSİNE İLİŞKİN BİLGİ DÜZEYLERİ: ÇOK MERKEZLİ BİR ÇALIŞMA

Yasemin UsluMeltem Altay

Amaç: COVID-19 tanılı hastaların tedavi yönetiminde oksijen tedavisinin önemli bir yeri vardır. Bu araştırma COVID-19 tanılı hastalara bakım veren yoğun bakım hemşirelerinin oksijen tedavisine ilişkin bilgi düzeylerinin belirlenmesi amacıyla planlandı. Yöntem: Tanımlayıcı çalışma, Türkiye’de özel bir sağlık grubuna bağlı toplam 16 hastanede COVID-19 yoğun bakım hemşiresi (N=446) ile gerçekleştirildi. Araştırmaya toplamda 322 hemşire dahil edildi. Veriler, Google anket aracılığıyla literatür kapsamında hazırlanan Oksijen Tedavisi Bilgi Formu ile toplandı. Bulgular: Hemşirelerin oksijen tedavisi alt boyutlarından aldıkları puanlar ortalama 40,77 ile 86,21 arasında değişmekte olup toplam puan ortalamaları 72,99’dır. Hemşirelerin eğitim düzeyleri ve çalışma şekillerinin oksijen tedavisi bilgi düzeylerini etkilediği belirlendi (p<0,05). Sonuç: Hemşirelerin, oksijen tedavisinde hemşirelik girişimlerine yönelik bilgilerinin yeterli; ancak oksijen tedavisi tanım ve kavramlarına ilişkin bilgilerinin yetersiz olduğu söylenebilir. COVID-19 hastalarında oksijen tedavisi ile ilgili hasta güvenliğinin geliştirilmesi için eğitim programlarının planlanması ve hemşirelerin yetkinliklerinin değerlendirilmesi önerilmektedir. Güvenli oksijen tedavisi konusunda yasal yetkinliği sağlamak için rehber ve kılavuzların geliştirilmesi önemlidir.
