Abstract:
Background of the Study: Heat stroke is a severe condition caused by impairment of the body temperature regulating ability resulting from prolonged exposure to excessive heat and characterized by cessation of sweating, severe headache, high fever, hot and dry skin and coma. Heat stroke can be defined as a core body temperature raised above 1040 F accompanied by hot, dry skin and central nervous system dysfunction such as delirium, coma or convulsion
Objectives:
1) To assess the existing knowledge regarding management of heat stroke in children among school teachers.
2) To evaluate the effectiveness of planned teaching programme on knowledge regarding management of heat stroke in children among school teachers. 3) To associate the post-test knowledge score with selected demographic variable.
Material and Method: The study was conducted in selected school of Jabalpur. Pre experimental one group pretest post-test research design was used and sample size is 80.Non probability convenient sampling technique was used.
Result: The comparison of pre-test and post-test knowledge scores of school teachers regarding heat stroke. Mean, standard deviation and mean percentage score values are compared and student’s paired test is applied at 5% level of significance. Mean knowledge score in pre-test is 8.06 and in post-test it is 26.42 and standard deviation values of pre-test is 2.45 and post-test is 1.99. The calculated t-value is 55.131 and the tabulated t-value is 0.217 and p-value is 0.00. Thus the H1 is accepted and H0 is rejected in this study.
Conclusion: Hence it is concluded that the planned teaching program was effective on management of heat stroke among teachers.
