Program Preoperative Instruction Using Multimedia, Preoperation, General anesthesia, Satisfaction


This study is an experimental research. Aims to 1) Comparison of the data using video to the knowledge and practice of patients for patient preparation before receiving anesthesia in both 2) Satisfaction Study of the video. The conceptual framework of the theory of learning bloom (bloom, 1956) among patients who had been planning an operation of 50 divided into a control group and the experimental group, 25 in each group. A simple random sample was selected according to the list of surgical schedules. The instrument used in this study were 1) collecting data, 2) evaluate the knowledge and practice of patients receiving anesthesia in both 3) satisfaction of patients on videotape. Which were reviewed by a panel of experts and by the reliability coefficient alpha Cronbach (Cronbach’s alpha coefficient) was 0.85 by analysis of frequency distributions percent. The mean and standard deviation.

The results showed that 1) the level of knowledge and practice of patients receiving data normally at a good level ( = 13.60 SD = 1.4) the knowledge and behavior of patients participating in programs provided by the media VI. video of the trial at a good level (gif.latex?\bar{x} = 13.76 SD = 1.2). 2) the level of knowledge and practice of patients who participate in the program by using the media to videotape the experimental group did not differ from the control group (t = 0.15, p = 0.685). 3) the satisfaction of patients, the media video to prepare patients prior to anesthesia medication either. The level of satisfaction is very high. This research shows. The information provided by the media, video on knowledge and practice of patient’s preparation before the patients received anesthesia in the body. No difference was statistically significant. However, the information provided by the media that patient satisfaction and still the roles of nurse anesthetists.
