Dr. S Tamilselvi and V Hemalatha

The present study aims to determine the effectiveness of nurse led intervention of management of hypertension among hypertensive clients. A evaluative approach and one group pretest and post-test design was used for the present study. A total 30 samples were collected using non probability convenient sampling technique. The demographic data and level of knowledge on management of hypertension was assessed using self-structured questionnaire, followed by that the pretest and post-test was done by video based health education. The results of the study the pretest 19(67.86%) of clients had Stage -1 hypertension, 9(32.14%) were high normal and 2(7.14%) had stage – 2 hypertension. In the post test, 15(53.57%) clients had high normal, 11(39.29%) were normal and 3(10.71%) had stage-1 hypertension and diastolic BP in the pretest 19(67.86%) of clients had Stage -2 hypertension, 9(32.14%) had stage – 1 hypertension and 1(3.57%) had stage 3 and high normal hypertension. In the post test, 22(78.57%) clients had stage-1 hypertension, 5(17.86%) were normal and 3(10.71%) of clients had pre-hypertension. The pretest mean score of SBP was 141.0±9.95 and the post test mean score was 128.33±8.34. The calculated paired‘t’ test value of t=15.425 was found to be statistically significant at p<0.001 level. The pre-test mean score of DBP was 96.97±5.39 and the post test mean score was 88.23±3.76. The calculated paired ‘t’ test value of t=10.734 was found to be statistically significant at p<0.001 level. This clearly infers that the nurses led intervention on reduction of BP administered to hypertensive clients was found to be effective in reducing the level of BP in the post test.
