Abstract

Background: Role of Radiology Department has significantly changed over the years, from diagnostics; the journey has now added many interventional procedures, which are carried out in guidance of CT, Ultrasound and Fluoroscopy. Despite such significant advancement, it has been observed that general perception of word angiography is associated with cardiac angiography. This study assessed the level of knowledge of student nurses regarding the angiographic procedure carried out in Radiology department. The nursing students during their learning period are rotated in Radiology department as well as come across patients in ward who require angiography. This audit will reveal the level of knowledge they have regarding this procedure ad access the level of awareness they have for the pre and post procedure preparations.

Methods: radiology department staff in collaboration with school of Nursing, Aga khan university Hospital, conducted this survey. A simple survey form was circulated amongst Student Nurses. The forms were collected over a period of Two weeks. Data was summarized and results were evaluated.

Results: A total of 100 forms were received. Survey revealed that 99 % knew about angiography however only 67% were aware of non-cardiac angiography. 91 % responded positively about the awareness of location where as non cardiac and cardiac angiography were performed but on specific inquiry regarding the location only 7 were definite about all types of angiographies including cardiac , non cardiac (Radiology)and fluorescein angiography (eye). 45 knew about cardiac and radiological angiographies and 44 only knew about cardiac angiographies. With respect to indications, 47 had reasonable information and 38 had inadequate information. 55% knew about the preparation for angiography whereas 45 % were not well aware of it. 91 % were aware of post angiography procedure whereas 9% were not aware of them

Conclusions: The results were indicative that generally, student nurses are not much aware of non-cardiac angiographies and procedure performed however, because of extensive dealing with cardiac angiographic patients the pre and post procedure care of patients is generally satisfactory. Further rotations and lectures may be helpful in increasing awareness and increasing patient care

Key words: Non Cardiac Angiography, Nurses Awareness, Nurses Education
