|Title||:||"A Study to Assess the Effectiveness of Simulation on Cardiac Defibrillation Practices among Nurses Working In Critical Care Area."|
|Authors||:||Mrs: Archana Pardeshi|
Abstract: Background: Cardiovascular diseases have now become the leading cause of mortality in India. A quarter of all mortality is attributable to CVD. The Global Burden of Disease study estimate of age-standardized CVD death rate of 272 per 100 000 population in India is higher than the global average of 235 per 100 000 population.Defibrillation is a common treatment for life-threatening cardiac arrhythmias, ventricular fibrillation and pulse less ventricular tachycardia. Defibrillation consists of delivering a therapeutic dose of electrical energy to the affected heart with a device called a defibrillator. Despite the extension of training and the authorization of nurses to perform early defibrillation advocated by the American Heart Association, such practice has not been widely adopted in hospitals. Inadequate knowledge, lack of skill retention, insufficient organizational support and the passive culture of nurses are barriers preventing the move towards nurse-led defibrillation......
