ABSTRACT

Background: Cardiac arrests and accidents are the most common emergencies with grave consequences but the high mortality associated with them can be easily prevented most of the times by some very simple maneuvers and skill.

Aim: This study was undertaken to evaluate radiographers’ knowledge in management of unconscious patient in radiology departments in Awka and Nnewi metropolis of Anambra State.

Methods: A total of sixty (60) radiographers was studied, 47.7% of the studied radiographers work in private sector/healthcare and 58.3% work in government sector/healthcare. The sampling technique used was a convenience sampling.

Data was collected using self administered semi-structured questionnaires.

Results: Results showed that 100% of radiographers studied are aware of basic life support (BLS) but only 23.3% of them have received any form of training on basic life support (BLS). Most radiographers studied attributed their lack of knowledge of basic life support (BLS) to lack of training sponsorship and time factor (49.1) and 20% to lack of personal funds and time factor. Most radiographers studied are not satisfied with their level of management of unconscious patient (55.6%). Most radiographers studied noted the necessity of basic life support (BLS) training to the professional work (98.3%), However there is poor confidence of competence in management of unconscious patient among the studied radiographers.

Conclusion: There is gross inadequacy in training of radiographers. Recommendations were also made in line with obvious deficiency in knowledge of basic life support (BLS).
