To facilitate patient care, advanced breathing
devices require crucial nursing management. To
recognise adverse occurrences and enhance the quality
of care, the nursing staff in hospitals should have a basic
awareness of how a ventilator operates.1 Aim: The
study's aim was to improve the knowledge of healthcare
professionals regarding Ventilator Operation and its
mode. Methodology: To determine the impact of a Video
Assisted Teaching knowledge regarding Ventilator
Operation and its mode among nurses, a quasi-
experimental two group pre and post-test design was
utilised. The target population for the study was nurses.
Data analysis was done using the study's aims and
assumptions as the basis for the sample size of 70.
Statistical Package EZR - Software version 2.4 was used
to analyse the data. Result: The pre-test knowledge
scores of the control group and interventional group
were 11.54±3.10 and 11.46±3.25, respectively. The
experimental group's post-test knowledge scores were
statistically significantly different from the control
group's (p=0.00) mean scores in this study 24.17±3.61
and the control group's being 12.06 ± 2.73. Conclusion:
Inadequate ventilator settings in combination with
respiratory diseases and nurses' incapacity to spot
impending deterioration can have serious repercussions,
numerous complications, and a lengthened hospital stay.
Since many decisions about ventilators are based on
nurses' collaboration with doctors, nurses play a crucial
role in supporting patients' health and recovery in high
