In modern Intensive Care management of critical problems, most of the patients need artificial respiration during the stage of their illness. With the availability of variety of ventilators and increasing medical expertise, mechanical ventilation has become easier today. Any patient who is in respiratory failure (i.e) PaO2 is less than 50 mm Hg or PacO2 more than 50 mm Hg needs ventilatory support. A Study was undertaken to assess the effectiveness of planned teaching programe on care of babies on mechanical ventilator among staff nurses working in NICU in selected hospitals at Bangalore. Results: The results revealed that the overall mean score was 40.66% in pre-test and 78.22% in post-test. The majority of staff nurses 19 (63.33%) in general aspects 27 (90%) in nursing management had inadequate knowledge in pre-test. After planned teaching programme 17 (56.66%) in general aspect 14 (46.66%) in nursing management had adequate knowledge and remaining were in moderate knowledge. Paired ‘t’ test showed that there was a significant difference between pre-test and post-test scores with ‘t’ value of 18.4 at p<0.001. Chi-square revealed that there was no significant association between post test level of knowledge and selected demographic variables except in designation demographic variable. Interpretation and conclusion: The study findings revealed that planned teaching programme on Care of Babies on mechanical ventilator is effective in improving knowledge of staff nurses. The study also reveals that there is no significant association between post-test level of knowledge and selected demographic variables except designation. There is a significant association between the designation of staff nurses with post-test level of knowledge at p<0.01 (df = 1) level of significance.
