Tahir Kemal ŞAHİN*, Lütfi Saltuk DEMİR, İbrahim KORUK.

Abstract
Objective: The aim of this study is to determine the right knowledge of blood pressure measurement of the nurses who working in clinics.
Materials and Method: 103 nurses who are working in Meram Medical Faculty Hospital were included to this descriptive study. Sampling method was stratified proportional random sampling method, with strata for the number of nurses at clinics. A questionnaire, which was formed of some questions about standard measuring methods of blood pressure, was applied to the nurses.
Results: It was determined that 55.3% to 98.1% of the nurses answered the most of the questions correctly. But, they gave different answers to the questions about choosing the arm for measurement, inflation level of the cuff, deflation speed and how many measurements should be done for true result. It was found that the female nurses had much more knowledge about the tension of wrapping the cuff around the arm and the correct positioning of the stethescope than the male ones. Oppositely, the male nurses had higher correct answer rate about deflation of the cuff than the female nurses.
Conclusion: It was concluded that the knowledge of blood pressure measurement of the nurses was partly insufficient. Periodical educational studies should be done for the nurses to complete the blood pressure measurement knowledge of them.

Key words: Nurse, blood pressure, hypertension



BİR TIP FAKÜLTESİ HASTANESİ'NDE GÖREVLİ HEMŞİRELERİN KAN BASINCI ÖLÇÜM BİLGİLERİNİN DEĞERLENDİRİLMESİ

Özet
Amaç: Bu çalışmanın amacı, hastane kliniklerinde görev yapan hemşirelerin kan basıncını doğru ölçme konusundaki bilgilerinin tespit edilmesidir.
Gereç ve Yöntem: Bu tanımlayıcı araştırma kapsamına, Konya Meram Tıp Fakültesi Hastanesi’nde görev yapmakta olan 103 hemşire alınmıştır. Örneklem seçimi, kliniklerdeki hemşire sayısına orantılı olarak basit rastgele yöntemle yapılmıştır. Hemşirelere kan basıncı standart ölçüm yöntemlerine ilişkin sorular içeren bir soru formu uygulanmıştır.
Bulgular: Araştırmaya alınan hemşirelerin % 55.3 - % 98.1’i soruların büyük bölümünü doğru olarak yanıtlamıştır. Ancak, hangi koldan ölçüm yapılacağına, manşonun hangi basınç değerine kadar şişirileceğine, hangi hızda indirileceğine, doğru sonuç için kaç ölçüm yapılması gerektiğine ilişkin sorulara farklı yanıtlar vermişlerdir. Kadın hemşirelerin manşonun kola sarılma gerginliğini ve steteskobun kola doğru yerleştirilmesini bilme konularında erkek hemşirelerden anlamlı şekilde daha fazla oranda bilgi sahibi oldukları, buna karşın erkek hemşirelerin manşonu indirme hızını kadın hemşirelerden daha yüksek oranda doğru yanıtladıkları saptanmıştır.
Sonuç: Hemşirelerin kan basıncı ölçüm bilgilerinin kısmen yetersiz olduğu sonucuna varılmıştır. Hemşirelerin kan basıncı ölçüm bilgilerini tamamlayıcı nitelikte periyodik hizmet içi eğitimler yapılmalıdır.

Anahtar Kelimeler: Hemşire, kan basıncı, hipertansiyon
